What is Project ECHO®?
Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a movement, whose mission is to develop the capacity to demonopolize knowledge and amplify the capacity to provide best practice care for underserved people.
By using videoconferencing techology, the ECHO Model™ connects groups of community providers with specialists at teleECHO clinics. The sessions, designed around case-based learning and mentorship, help local workers gain the expertise required to provide needed services. Providers gain skills and confidence; specialists learn new approaches for applying their knowledge; fostering an "all teach, all learn" approach.

Michigan Center for Rural Health in partnership with Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine is using the Project ECHO® model to create a community collaboration to assist providers and other members of the health care team throughout Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula to more effectively and confidently manage their infectious disease patients.
