Connecting Community Providers With Health Care Resources

Project ECHO is a free partnership that connects community providers and providers in rural areas with specialists at University of Utah Health. Project ECHO aims to treat chronic and complex diseases in rural and underserved areas by connecting providers through virtual conferencing technology.

Project ECHO benefits both providers and patients for the following reasons:

  • Community-based treatment is safe, effective, timely, and much more cost effective than transporting patients to clinics in cities
  • Patients are able to stay within community practice

Rural providers can get education and professional resources from providers at University of Utah Health by participating with Project ECHO.
