Minot State University Project ECHO

The Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) model was established in 2003 at the University of New Mexico, School of Medicine to share knowledge and best practices for underserved populations. The EC­HO model™ uses video conferencing to conduct learning sessions about evidence-based practices in education, health, and disability services. With this method, educators, healthcare providers, special service providers, case managers, administrators, and families have access to expert advice right in their homes, schools, and offices.

This training series focuses on the Medical Home Model, which aims to provide high quality primary medical care by building relationships with families, clinical specialists, and community resources. This ECHO® is aimed at Primary Care Providers, LPNs, NP, and families with children with special care needs.
