A team of physical and behavioral health clinicians in the primary care setting can improve patient outcomes. The ORPRN/CareOregon Team-Based Care ECHO Clinic helps primary care clinics throughout the state develop fully integrated healthcare teams.
The weekly one-hour videoconferencing sessions include a didactic portion, and participating physicians will also have the opportunity to present cases for review and discussion. CME is available.
The clinics are conducted by secure videoconferencing under the direction of Ron Stock, M.D., consultant for Oregon Rural Practice-based Research Network and Clinical Innovation Advisor at the Oregon Health Authority Transformation Center.
Please note: The ORPRN/CareOregon Team-based Care ECHO Clinic is a pilot project funded by the Oregon Health Authority Transformation Center. Participation is by invitation only. For more information, please contact Maggie McDonnell.
