Rural areas with limited resources are faced with the major problem of not having access to medical care for complicated obstetrics. Collaboration between specialists and rural clinicians help overcome the barriers and challenges that patients face when attempting to access state-of-the-art healthcare.

The Prematurity Prevention Program TeleECHO clinic provides evidence-based guidelines, continuing education, and expanded community support for physicians and mid-level clinicians. The clinic allows obstetric clinicians the opportunity to learn best practices for selected conditions and peer-review of high-risk cases, which helps to assure optimal outcomes of high-risk pregnancies and reduce the incidence of premature births. The structure of the clinic includes presentations, discussions, and case studies from community clinicians. Comments and suggestions for future topics of interest are welcome.
