Project Details


Project ECHO Diabetes


Project ECHO Diabetes uses the successful Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) ModelTM to empower primary care providers (PCPs) across California to administer best-practice diabetes care to their underserved patients. The goal is to equip primary care providers and practices to deliver high-quality care to people of all ages living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and complex insulin-requiring type 2 diabetes (T2D) who lack routine access to diabetes specialty care especially in rural and underserved communities. The Project recruits primary care providers and clinics who care for patients with diabetes to evaluate the impact and outcomes of the educational and outreach model. 

Inclusion Criteria

  • PCPs: Licensed Provider in the State of California
  • Patients with Insulin-Requiring Diabetes: Have a diagnosis of Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes and use insulin; receive care from one of the participating primary care clinics

Exclusion Criteria

  • PCPs: Not interested in participating
  • Patients with Insulin-Requiring Diabetes: Not interested in participating
