A Revolution in Medical Education and Care Delivery. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing 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.
- Patients need access to specialty care for their complex health conditions
- Specialist are fewer in number and more difficult to access, especially in rural and underserved communities
- Health care clinicians get training in specialty care services so more patients can get the care they need
- Patients get the right care, in the right place, at the right time, improving patient outcomes and reducing health care cost
