The New England Rural Health RoundTable, host of the 2018 New England Rural Health Conference, which will be held on November 7th and 8th at Sunday River in Newry, Maine, has offered the Project ECHO Northern New England Network an opportunity to align with the conference and convene a breakfast session with conference participants to explore regional priorities and synergies for Project ECHO.  We would like to invite you to attend the breakfast and engage in this important discussion.  You can attend the breakfast only on November 7th at no cost by emailing Jonathan Church at jchurch@mainequalitycounts.org OR if you would like to attend the full conference with breakfast included, please visit the New England Rural Health RoundTable Website to register.

The mission of the Project ECHO: NNE Network is to design and implement a regional network of telehealth services using the Project ECHO modelTM to improve access, care delivery, outcomes and health for Northern New Englanders residing in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. The Project ECHO NNE Network will support providers and patients to work effectively together to manage common, emerging and complex conditions safely, effectively and compassionately.

Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) dramatically improves both capacity and access to specialty care for rural and underserved populations.  This low-cost, high-impact intervention is accomplished by linking expert inter-disciplinary specialist teams with primary care clinicians through teleECHO™ clinics, in which the experts mentor primary care clinicians to help them manage their patient cases and share their expertise via mentoring, guidance, feedback and didactic education.  This enables primary care clinicians to develop the skills and knowledge to treat patients with common, complex conditions in their own communities which reduces travel costs, wait times, and avoidable complications.
