Project ECHO, or Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes, began in 2003. It’s a program that uses collaborative education to build the expertise of medical providers in rural areas. Project ECHO got a national boost in December 2016 when President Obama signed the ECHO Act to expand and study the model.
