Children’s Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a tele-mentoring model which works to improve capacity by linking expert specialist teams with participants from a variety of professional backgrounds through teleECHO™ clinics. Project ECHO allows for the sharing of knowledge in real time utilizing technology, clinical management tools and case-based learning.
Children’s Project ECHO launched in 2017 in collaboration with numerous partners and has offered learning series around the topics of childhood obesity, mental and behavioral health, and sports medicine to-date.
