What is Project ECHO?
Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes), a revolution in medical education and care delivery, is now offered by ASU's College of Health Solutions. This innovative model for improving health outcomes aims to increase capacity by sharing knowledge. Specialists at our "hub" site work with primary care providers in communities across the state to train them in the delivery of specialty care services. The program increases access to specialty treatment and care in rural and underserved areas.
The ECHO model is founded upon providing a platform for lifelong learning of guided practice to increase workforce capacity and provide best-practice care to rural and underserved populations all over the world. The driving force behind Project ECHO is the movement to demonopolize knowledge and amplify local capacity to address the needs of the most vulnerable patients by equipping communities with the right knowledge, at the right place, at the right time.
