Real Patient Case Studies, Real Patient Results.

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increases workforce capacity to provide best practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point video conferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, primary care doctors, nurses and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.

How Idaho physicians can gain access to continuing medical education

Project ECHO Idaho

ECHO Idaho is an educational resource empowering primary care providers in Idaho’s remote or underserved communities to treat complex chronic diseases with specialist-level expertise. Clinicians join from around the state to share resources and discuss what really works. Sessions are conveniently scheduled over the lunch hour, and participating providers earn free Continuing Medical Education credits.

People need access to specialty care for their complex health conditions.

There aren't enough specialists to treat everyone who needs care, especially in rural and underserved communities.

ECHO trains primary care clinicians to provide specialty care services. This means more people can get the care they need.

Patients get the right care, in the right place, at the right time. This improves outcomes and reduces costs.
