DescriptionCOVID-19 does not affect everyone equally. In the US, it is exposing inequities in the health system. “Navigating services like health, housing, employment, and transportation can be incredibly difficult, but these factors all contribute to our overall health. NCCARE360 provides the opportunity for health to all North Carolinians by providing public access to resources and helping health and community-based organizations make electronic referrals, communicate in real time, securely share client information, and track outcomes together”. The goal of this ECHO is to provide western North Carolina’s primary care practitioners; social service and community-based organizations with capacity to address the inequities exacerbated by the COVID crisis.
Project ECHO® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes education to provide best evidence healthcare practices and reduce health disparities. ECHO is led by an expert team that uses multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual learning sessions comprised of a short didactic followed by discussion among a panel of experts and participants.
