WHAT IS ECHO?

ECHO is a methodology for sharing knowledge. It is intentional education. It “moves knowledge, not patients”. It is a way for interdisciplinary groups to collaborate regardless of geographic separation.

INNOVATION

ECHO leverages technology to bring scarce resources to under-served and rural populations. It is a way to deliver the right care in the right place at the right time. ECHO creates a virtual learning community that enhances access to specialty care statewide.

HAWAI'I LEARNING GROUPS EFFORTS INCLUDE

Curriculum Development

ECHO methods lend themselves to addressing medically complex care. We can help define what is important and what is relevant to the learning needs of your target group.

Video-Conference Expertise

We have skills to produce video-conference sessions with the Zoom tool.

Outcomes Measurement

We are outcomes researchers. We take attendance and track participation. We use surveys for continuing education accreditation and to measure progress towards the goals of improved access to care and learner self-efficacy.

Coordination and Scheduling

We have tools to help launch additional curricula using the ECHO model.

Faculty Development

Each ECHO session benefits from a good teacher and skilled facilitator. HLG helps others develop these skills.
