About Project ECHO

A collaborative model of virtual education for health professionals that empowers nursing home team members, especially in rural communities, to provide specialty geriatric care to more people, right where they live.

  • Interactive
  • Co-management of Cases
  • Collaborative Problem Solving
  • Peer-to-Peer Learning

The format of an ECHO is a clinical case presentation by a nursing home team member followed by a 15-minute informational presentation delivered by the ECHO Hub Team.

How are Patient Care Needs Addressed?
Training nursing homes through HIPPA-compliant, technology-enabled collaborative learning.

  • Addressing geriatric health concerns
  • Conducting regular sessions to discuss specialized topics relevant to nursing homes
  • Using case-based learning to determine best treatment options

There is no cost to join an ECHO session. Free NAB credits for nursing home administrators.
