Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a knowledge-sharing company that connects practitioners in rural and underserved areas to specialist mentors. The program uses video conferencing to connect primary care providers in rural communities with specialists who mentored and worked with them to provide care for patients with HCV. Project ECHO’s model uses case-based learning and allows medical specialists to share their knowledge and expertise so that primary care providers can manage patients with complex chronic conditions, like substance use disorders, in their communities.
