Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a tele-mentoring model which improves capacity and access to specialty care by linking expert specialist teams with primary care providers through teleECHO™ clinics. Using teleECHO™ clinics, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center will convene experts (the HUB) to review cases in real-time, online learning sessions with regional primary care clinics (the SPOKES) to help community providers manage difficult patient cases and share their expertise via guidance, feedback and education.

Who Can Participate?

All levels of providers throughout Nebraska are welcome and highly encouraged to participate in teleECHO™ clinics, including: physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, mental health practitioners, physical therapists, athletic trainers and other related staff.
