Since its inception in 2003, Project ECHO at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center has served as the homebased and research and development incubator for new and innovative teleECHO programs. Starting with the first program for hepatitis C, ECHO has developed over 40 teleECHO programs covering such wide areas as diabetes, HIV, TB, women’s health, chronic pain, substance use disorders, palliative care, rheumatology, community health workers, and so many more. In what started out as a model to expand access for specialty healthcare, ECHO is now a full scale educational model that has grown to include teleECHO programs for obesity, behavioral health, as well as career readiness for teachers and school counselors to name a few. Programs started here in New Mexico have been replicated by universities and other organizations all over the world and have served as the inspiration for dozens of more teleECHO programs.
