Monitoring and Evaluation Study of Project ECHO for ILD

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a knowledge-sharing model to expand the capacity of the health care workforce so that more people can get high quality care for their health conditions in or near the communities where they live. The model brings specialty disease expertise to community providers through its hub-and-spoke networks. The overarching goal of the project is to implement and evaluate an adaptation of the ECHO model to interstitial lung disease (ILD) diagnosis and care among primary care physicians (PCPs) and community pulmonologists in non-urban or underserved communities.
