Project ECHO

UNH Project ECHO Hub

UNH is a Project ECHO Hub and has created the Partnership for Academic-Clinical Telepractice (PACT), led by the UNH Institute for Health Policy and Practice, NH Citizens Health Initiative. 

The Project ECHO® model is an evidence-based method developed by researchers at the University of New Mexico that links interdisciplinary specialists with community-based practitioners using web conferencing technology. During teleECHO™ sessions, experts mentor and share their expertise across a virtual network via case-based learning, enabling practice teams to manage complex conditions in their own communities. 

The UNH Project ECHO Hub will help community-based providers grow their expertise without leaving their practices, and bring much needed services to patients throughout New Hampshire. 

Current UNH Project ECHO Hub Learning Communities:

Medications for Addiction Treatment (MAT) ECHO

UNH's NH Citizens Health Initiative and the Department of Nursing have partnered to develop a Project ECHO learning community around Medications for Addiction Treatment. 

This MAT ECHO will:

  • Increase knowledge and experience in Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment
  • Train more than 150 family and psychiatric nurse practitioner students on Medications for Addiction Treatment over 3 years
  • Mentor community practices
  • Create a learning network for New Hampshire clinicians

The UNH MAT ECHO program is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
