Telementoring & Echo Programs
Telementoring, such as project ECHO, brings together specialist teams and primary care physicians in rural and urban communities through virtual conference platforms. These programs help health care providers learn about diseases, conditions and/or processes from experts, and provide specialized care to their own patients through case presentation and consultations with specialists.
South Carolina providers have access to several Telementoring and ECHO programs.
