Introduced by the University of New Mexico, project ECHO is a collaborative medical and case management model that encourages shared learning and higher quality patient care. The model uses expert academic hubs which connect to frontline teleECHO clinics to provider greater access to care and provide clinicians with enhanced knowledge and resources.
Community health workers serve an important frontline role, in that they share information with patients and encourage positive health behaviors. To support these professionals, project ECHO developed training models to help health workers serve in a wider variety of clinical roles and learn new skills. This training is accomplished through face-to-face education, weekly teleconferences, and video modules. In addition, project ECHO provides ongoing quality assurance in support of community health worker training.
