University of Vermont Project ECHO

About Project ECHO

The Project ECHO model™. Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an evidence-based interactive distance-learning method developed by researchers at the University of New Mexico.  The ECHO model™ links teams of interdisciplinary specialists with primary care clinicians.  During teleECHO™ sessions, experts mentor and share their expertise across a virtual network via case-based learning, enabling primary care practice teams to treat patients with complex conditions in their own communities.
