Project ECHO® ADHD Series 5 and Childhood Overweight and Obesity Series 2 now open
Project ECHO® have just commenced Series 5 of their TeleECHO ADHD Clinic and Series 2 of their TeleECHO Childhood Overweight and Obesity Clinic.
Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a collaborative model of medical education and care management that empowers clinicians everywhere to provide better care to more people, right where they live.
The ECHO® model does not actually “provide” care to patients. Rather, it exponentially increases access to specialty-level care in rural and underserved areas by providing front-line clinicians with the knowledge and support they need to manage complex patients. It does this by engaging clinicians in a revolutionary model of telementoring, collaborative education and case presentations.
As the ECHO® model expands world-wide, it is helping to address some of the healthcare system’s most intractable problems, including inadequate or inequitable access to care, rising costs, systemic inefficiencies, and unequal or slow diffusion of best practices. ECHO® presents an opportunity to exponentially expand workforce capacity to treat more patients sooner, using existing resources. At a time when the health care system is under mounting pressure to do more without spending more, this is critical.
