EXTENSION FOR COMMUNITY HEALTHCARE OUTCOMES (ECHO): Our goal is to use videoconferencing technology to provide education, training and engagement opportunities to primary care providers concerning specific disease states or conditions that are chronic, costly, common and complex. The goal is to improve patient access and health outcomes as well as reduce overall cost for care of patients.
ECHO creates ongoing learning communities where primary care clinicians receive support and develop the skills they need to treat specific conditions. Specialists serve as mentors and colleagues, sharing their medical knowledge and expertise with primary care clinicians.
As a result, they can provide comprehensive, best-practice care to patients with complex health conditions — right where they live.
There are six Show-Me ECHO clinics, and each is led by a medical expert:
- ECHO Autism — Kristin Sohl, MD
- Chronic Pain Management ECHO — Karl Haake, MD
- Derm ECHO — Karen Edison, MD
- ENDO ECHO — Uzma Khan, MD
- Hep C ECHO — Bruce Bacon, MD
- Impact Asthma ECHO — Ben Francisco, PhD
