Becevic Receives Top Award at International Health Conference

Winning essay details telehealth program

Mirna Becevic, PhD, an assistant research professor in the Department of Dermatology, recently was honored at the 14th International Conference on Informatics, Management and Technology in Healthcare. The focus of the 2016 conference, held in July in Athens, Greece, was the development, translation and dissemination of health care strategies that improve population health.

Becevic received the Best Paper Award for her essay, "Show-Me ECHO: Complex Disease Care Capacity-Building Telehealth Program."

Becevic is the lead evaluator for the Missouri Telehealth Network’s Show-Me ECHO project. Funded by the Missouri legislature, Show-Me ECHO — which stands for Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes — allows a team of medical experts to use videoconferencing technology to train rural health providers throughout the state to identify and treat chronic conditions. In addition, Becevic leads other telehealth-related studies at MU.
