What Is Project ECHO?
Project ECHO is an innovative health care delivery solution pioneered in New Mexico by Dr. Sanjeev Arora and has now been replicated by over 40 sites worldwide. The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine was early to adopt Project ECHO, with only Washington, and urban Chicago replicating sooner. ECHO is a simple telehealth linkage connecting university-based faculty specialists to primary care providers in rural and under-served areas to extend specialty care to patients with chronic, costly, and complex medical illnesses.
The goal of Project ECHO Nevada is to meet the needs of primary care providers by offering an alternative to costly travel and long waits for patients who need specialty care.

University-based faculty specialists and community specialists lead a variety of clinics. Project ECHO clinics are open to primary care providers at all levels and include CME/CE for participants who complete the evaluation form after each clinic.
