Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a movement to de-monopolize knowledge and amplify local capacity that provides best-practice care for underserved people all over the world. The ECHO® model is committed to addressing the needs of the most vulnerable populations by equipping communities with the right knowledge, at the right place, at the right time.
Fundamental Principals of the Project ECHO® model are:
- Use Technology to leverage scarce resources
- Share “best practices” to reduce disparities
- Apply case-based learning to master complexity
- Evaluate and monitor outcomes via web-based database
