How does ECHO work?
ECHO uses a “learning by doing model” in bi-weekly one hour video conferences, where primary care providers present de-identified cases to their colleagues and specialists at the hub site. They then receive treatment suggestions from the entire community of practice. Each session lasts one hour, and includes a short presentation on a specific clinical topic.
Any primary care provider who wants to improve their opioid management skills can become a “spoke” site (individually or as a team). Other health professionals can also join. We ask community participants to participate in the research that we need in order to document the benefits of ECHO Idaho.
Once community partners feel confident and skilled in patient management, they will be empowered to become resources in their community for other primary care providers.
