TeleECHO Virtual Clinic for Nurse Practitioners

NMNPC has collaborated with Project ECHO over the past several years, recognizing its value for nurse practitioners in all areas of New Mexico. Project ECHO is a lifelong learning and guided practice model intended to revolutionize continuing education and exponentially increase workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point video conferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. NMNPC supports Project ECHO because:

  • People need access to specialty care for their complex health conditions.
  • There aren't enough specialists to treat everyone who needs care, especially in rural and underserved communities.
  • ECHO trains primary care clinicians to provide specialty care services. This means more people can get the care they need.
  • Patients get the right care, in the right place, at the right time. This improves outcomes and reduces costs.

Current Status of National Home Health Care Legislation

NM Representative Steve Pearce has agreed to become a co-sponsor of the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act of 2013 (HR2504/S1332), joining Representatives Michelle Lujan Grisham and Ben Lujan as well as Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich in cosponsoring the bill. This wouldn’t have happened without the hard work of NPs from New Mexico. Thanks to everyone who communicated with their Members of Congress and voiced their support for this important bill. NPs can continue to use the link on the AANP website that allows AANP members in our state to contact their congressional members on other issues impacting NPs.
