ECHO Research

Our team developed, and continues to modify, a comprehensive mixed-methods evaluation framework to measuring the impact of ECHO Chronic Pain and Opioid Stewardship at St. Joseph’s Care Group for both providers and patients.

Current research efforts includes measuring the effectiveness of the ECHO case-based learning and guided practice model by promoting and disseminating best-practices to isolated primary care providers who provide patient-centered care specific to their communities. Majority of our research projects are funded by external funding agencies via successful research grant applications.
