Mission Statement

Project ECHO SC Pregnancy Wellness is a resource for South Carolina obstetric providers. The ECHO will provide telementoring support to providers across the state of South Carolina. Our ECHO sessions feature brief, user-driven didactic content relevant to perinatal care, delivered by national experts in the field of obstetrics. Our goal is to create a network of obstetrical health care professionals collaborating to support each other in treating high-risk pregnancy patients within their own respective communities. The heart of Project ECHO SC Pregnancy Wellness is the network of healthcare professionals working together to support each other in increasing provider capacity, improving maternal healthcare, reducing disparities, and improving maternal fetal outcomes for our state.

What is Project ECHO?

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a movement, whose mission is to develop the capacity to demonopolize knowledge and amplify the capacity to provide best practice care for underserved people all over the world. The ECHO model links specialist teams at academic 'hubs' with providers in local communities - the 'spokes' of the model. Together, they participate in regular teleECHO sessions aimed at enhancing providers capacity to deliver best practice care.  The ECHO session consists of a case presentation followed by a discussion and recommendations and a relevant didactic from an expert in the field.  These sessions are supported by basic, widely available teleconferencing technology that enables providers to join from anywhere using a computer or mobile device. ECHO creates an ongoing learning community where providers receive support and develop the skills needed to treat a specific condition in an "all-learn, all-teach" environment.
