What is Project ECHO?

ECHO, which stands for Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes, is an all-teach-all-learn tele-mentoring model that uses case-based learning. Specialists and experts at a “Hub” meet regularly with physicians, nurse practitioners and other clinicians at “Spokes” via videoconferencing to support in the delivery of specialty care services. To learn more about the ECHO model and its history, watch this short video by Project ECHO’s founder, Dr. Sanjeev Arora and visit


ECHO MOLST + ECHO eMOLST was developed to meet the ever-increasing demand for professional training and technical assistance for practice transformation focused on advance care planning, MOLST and eMOLST. Project ECHO’s innovative approach will support the current and future needs of our clinicians and system leaders.

The aims of ECHO MOLST + ECHO eMOLST are to provide sustainable MOLST education and to improve the quality of thoughtful MOLST discussions and documentation to ensure patient preferences are honored at end-of-life. Excellus BlueCross BlueShield is a partner with Project ECHO.

ECHO MOLST is an 8-week clinic series. Interested attendees are encouraged to continue on to the 4-week ECHO eMOLST clinic series. Weekly lunch hour-video conferencing clinics begin with brief introductions and a short 15-minute didactic presentation. This is followed by a 35 to 40-minute real patient case presentation given by a “spoke” using a Q&A and discussion format. Additionally, free CME credits are offered to attendees. Each ECHO MOLST  + ECHO eMOLST clinic session has been approved for 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.

ECHO MOLST + ECHO eMOLST is open to physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and anyone involved in the MOLST process – clinics are open to all!
