Tele-Mentoring Is Creating Global Communities of Practice in Health Ca

Posted by @DanHinmon, Nov 23, 2016

Dr. Sanjeev Arora, a liver disease specialist in New Mexico, knew he would never be able to care for all the hepatitis C patients in that state in time to have a difference in their health.

So in 2003 he created Project Echo, a system for transferring specialty care knowledge to primary care providers.

Now, 13 years later, Project ECHO has become a movement. It encapsulates 94 academic and expert hubs worldwide (58 in the United States and the rest in 16 other countries), and it covers more than 60 complex conditions.
