6 Monthly ECHO ™ Sessions
Project ECHO™ is a disease management approach that aims to increase knowledge among providers and standardize best practices for the screening, care, and treatment of a disease. ECHO™ is built on a core principle of case-based learning, wherein clinicians and healthcare providers from various sites attend a teleconference meeting hosted by a central “hub” team to present individual cases, consult with a multidisciplinary team of specialists, and learn from the cases presented by other providers. Case discussions are highly interactive, capitalizing on the insights of an interdisciplinary team of attendees in the hub and spokes. ECHO™ sessions offer the opportunity to build a dynamic community of guided practice.
