COVID-19: IHS Clinical Readiness and Patient Care

The ECHO Institute and the Indian Health Service (IHS) launched weekly COVID-19 Clinical Readiness and Patient Care ECHO sessions on March 17, 2020 in response to the pandemic in Indian Country. These sessions convene IHS and tribal providers from around the U.S., many working in rural areas with limited resources, in crucial real-time, peer-to-peer clinical learning. During each session, IHS leadership from Rockville, MD shares the federal-level perspective and, in turn, has the opportunity to hear from providers in the field. IHS national clinical consultants for Emergency Medicine and Infectious Disease present and lead discussions on topics including COVID-19 clinical updates, situation reports, and local area response.
