Project ECHO

Project ECHO™ (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) uses telehealth to transform the way education and knowledge are delivered. 

The ECHO Model

The ECHO™ model is a tele-mentoring, guided practice model that focuses on moving knowledge and not people. It is a worldwide movement that currently addresses over 65 different topics including Hepatitis C, chronic pain, HIV, and antibiotic stewardship.

ASC-SC Antimicrobial Stewardship TeleECHO Initiative

We aim to improve the productivity of antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASPs) across South Carolina through the Project ECHO™ tele-mentoring model. In our teleECHO clinic, you will interact with expert infectious disease physicians/pharmacists and other participating healthcare providers. This clinic has two target populations: ambulatory care/outpatient settings and inpatient settings (primarily community and critical access hospitals).

There will be 1 session for each target population per month, and participants will be able to receive free continuing education credits. Sessions will be conducted using a cloud-based video conferencing system called Zoom.
