Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a collaborative model of medical education and care management geared toward primary care clinicians in rural & underserved areas. These caregivers are linked to expert clinical teams from Intermountain Healthcare via video, which acts like virtual grand rounds and combines mentoring and patient case presentations. This allows front-line clinicians to obtain the knowledge and support they need to manage patients who have complex conditions, to better determine when referrals to specialists and sub-specialists are medically appropriate, and to improve relationships and networks they have with specialists in a variety of areas of care.
