OHSU ECHO enhances the ability of primary care physicians to treat chronic and complex illnesses in their hometown clinic and increases patient access to care. It is modeled after the University of New Mexico’s Project ECHO ® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes).
OHSU ECHO connects primary care providers with OHSU specialists for live, weekly video teleconferences. These one-hour virtual clinics give primary care physicians real-time reviews of complex cases. OHSU specialists provide written treatment recommendations. Each session also includes a 15- to 20-minute didactic presentation. CME is provided.
The OHSU Telemedicine Network is Oregon's oldest and most comprehensive telehealth program. OHSU gives patients in community hospitals throughout the region immediate access to pediatric, neonatal, stroke, trauma, and other specialists 24/7.
