The ECHO Institute collaborates with various partners across Indian Country to deliver HCV, HIV and tuberculosis (TB) expertise to rural and underserved areas by linking Indian Health Service (IHS), tribal health and Urban Indian Health (I/T/U) providers with a panel of multi-disciplinary experts as well as their peers. ECHO collaborates with the IHS to provide expert advice on the management of HCV patient cases during our Indian Country HCV TeleECHO sessions. ECHO, IHS, Gallup Indian Medical Center and the New Mexico regional partner site of South Central AIDS Education and Training Center collaborate to provide a multidisciplinary team of HIV experts during our Indian Country HIV TeleECHO sessions. The IHS TB TeleECHO serves the Navajo Nation through a collaboration with New Mexico, Arizona and Navajo Nation departments of health, and the IHS to support a comprehensive TB case management approach for the patient care teams. These partnerships, through the use of the ECHO model, build a community of learning and practice among the I/T/U providers and increase access to high quality specialty care in areas where patients may not otherwise have access.
