Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an innovative model for expanding access to specialty and high-quality primary care in rural areas using telehealth-enabled networked learning. Unlike traditional telemedicine, which enables remote interactions between providers and patients, Project ECHO uses state-of-the-art telecommunications technology and case-based learning to cultivate collaborative mentoring partnerships between specialists and primary care providers. Developed at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center’s ECHO Institute, Project ECHO trains and supports primary care providers to treat complex diseases outside their usual scope of practice, dramatically expanding capacity to provide treatment and improving patient outcomes.
