  • Project ECHO® is a telementoring model that supports multiple learners.
  • Telemedicine is a synchronous model where a provider gives advice to a patient or another provider in real time using virtual technology.
  • eConsult is an asynchronous model where a specialist gives advise to a provider through the electronic medical record.
