In July 2015, the Missouri Telehealth Network (MTN) received $1.5 million in state appropriations to develop and launch the Show-Me ECHO program. This program is also being formed in other states. Show-Me ECHO uses videoconferencing technology to bring together physician specialists and primary care providers to collaborate in a case-based learning environment to develop advanced clinical skills and best practices. Learn how to build an ECHO project in your rural community. Understand the benefits and challenges of the necessary expertise and staffing needed to operate ECHO projects.
