What is Project ECHO?

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a revolutionary guided-practice model that reduces health disparities in under-served and remote areas of the state, nation, and world. Through innovative telementoring, the ECHO model uses a hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing approach where expert teams lead virtual clinics, amplifying the capacity for providers to deliver best-in-practice care to the underserved in their own communities.

“A practical action plan for reinventing healthcare in a post-pandemic world–from a physician-entrepreneur who works with Fortune 500 companies. If the healthcare system were an emperor, Covid-19 tragically revealed that it had no clothes. Healthcare had to adapt, and quickly–parking a dramatic acceleration of virtual care, drive-through testing, and homebased services. In the process, old rules were rewritten and, perhaps surprisingly, largely in a good way for patients. To succeed in the postpandemic world, all of us–patients, caregivers, providers, employers, investors, technologists, and policymakers–need to understand the new healthcare landscape and change our strategies and behaviors accordingly.” -careaftercovid.org
