Improve Access to Complex Care Treatment

Patients with complex medical conditions in New Jersey sometimes wait up to six months to see a specialist.

Improve Patient Outcomes

Investing time to learn how to provide specialty treatment to your patients in your primary care office, where they are most comfortable, can improve patient outcomes.

Grow Your Primary Care Practice Capacity

Research shows that providers who attend Project ECHO sessions increase their ability to treat patients and offer community resources and referrals to patients and caregivers. When multiple providers in one practice attend the same or different ECHOs, capacity to treat patients expands exponentially.
