On Sunday, the NAIC will host "Project ECHO: Moving Knowledge, Not Patients." The event is open to the public and will begin at noon in Convention Center rooms 108/110/112. Martin G. Kistin, M.D., Project ECHO/ECHO Institute, Professor of Medicine, Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Department of Medicine, University of New Mexico School of Medicine will present.
ECHO is an effective, adaptable, scalable model designed to exponentially increase medical expertise. ECHO does not treat patients directly, rather it builds expertise so patients are treated by local providers they already know and trust. Because complex disease treatment requires a team approach, ECHO trains physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, community health workers and other healthcare professionals. ECHO has been adopted by over 110 replicating partners in 22 countries for more than 55 chronic and infectious conditions.
