Overview

Rutgers Project ECHO 

The goal of Rutgers Project ECHO is to build collaborative communities to overcome health care disparities. By bringing specialist knowledge to primary care providers (PCPs) Project ECHO help’s create expanded access and reduce the cost of specialty care for underserved patients in New Jersey. PCPs become more confident in treating patients with complex conditions in their own practice by sharing best practices within a case-based learning model. Specialist mentors are from Rutgers RWJMS, RWJBarnabas Health, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, and Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care among many others.
