Description:
This case study is one in an ongoing series examining programs that aim to improve outcomes and reduce costs of care for patients with complex needs, who account for a large share of U.S. health care spending. In Project ECHO’s latest effort, the experts are training five primary care teams in the field via regular videoconferences to offer therapy and medication to treat patients’ mental illnesses and addictions, provide hands-on support in managing their physical health problems, and connect them with housing and other social supports to stabilize their lives.
