TeleECHO Sessions for HIV Prevention, HIV Treatment, HIV Case Management, and HCV

The SCAETC Central Office is located at the University of New Mexico Health Science Center ECHO Institute.  The ECHO Institute trains partners in the ECHO Model™ to scale their own social initiatives.  The ECHO Model is not traditional “telemedicine” where the specialist assumes care of the patient, but is instead telementoring, a guided practice model where the participating clinician retains responsibility for managing the patient.

Several partners within the SCAETC region utilize the ECHO Model™, which connects groups of community providers with specialists at centers of excellence in regular real-time collaborative sessions.  The sessions, designed around case based learning and mentorship, help local community members gain the expertise required to provide needed services.

The interprofessional team of academic and community experts both teach and learn from each other with the goal of increasing the knowledge, skills, and comfort level of providing best-practice care across diverse cultural and geographical contexts. As the capacity of the local workforce increases, lives improve.
