Project ECHO is an innovative telemedicine model pioneered in New Mexico by Dr. Sanjeev Arora and has now been replicated by over 200 sites worldwide. The purpose of Project ECHO Nevada is to expand the capacity of health professionals to effectively treat chronic, common, and complex health conditions in underserved populations throughout Nevada. Project ECHO Nevada links university-based faculty specialists to primary care providers in rural and under-served areas for a variety of specialty clinics. With the support of the SOR grant, Project ECHO Nevada has created a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) clinic that has proven to be a reliable and consistent resource for providers who want to learn more or expand their knowledge regarding this practice. Additionally, ECHO Nevada has expanded their Pain Management clinic to support clinicians with information on the proper prescribing of controlled substances, alternative therapies for pain, and the psychology behind pain.
