Project ECHO at Billings Clinic

About Billings Clinic Project ECHO

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes)™ is a collaborative model of medical education and tele-mentoring that empowers clinicians in rural and remote settings to deliver medical care that is comparable to that delivered at major healthcare centers. Billings Clinic launched Montana’s only Project ECHO hub in March 2016. The hub, a multidisciplinary team at Billings Clinic, holds weekly clinical didactics and case review sessions for providers at rural ‘spoke’ sites. For more information about Billings Clinic Project ECHO, including how your clinic can join, please visit the project website or contact Kim Hart.
The Pediatric Mental Health teleECHO™ Clinics will meet the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month from 12:00pm – 1:30pm. The PEDS ECHO clinical team:
  • Board certified child psychiatrist
  • Expert psychotherapist
  • Psychiatric pharmacist
  • Resource Specialist
The mission of the Pediatric Mental Health (PEDS) ECHO Clinic is to support the delivery of mental health services for children and adolescents by primary care clinicians.

Upcoming Project ECHO Sessions

After closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) developments and careful consideration by the Billings Clinic Project ECHO leadership team, our current Project ECHO Clinics until be postponed until June 2020. This is due to the local and regional staffing issues related to the COVID-19 as we prepare for and treat patients during this crucial time. Many Project ECHO members are on the front lines of this rapidly evolving public health crisis. Thanks to each of you for your efforts. Our Project ECHO team is working with urgency to implement measures to keep patients and staff healthy.
With our commitment to mental health, if you have a complex case arise please email me. Our expert panel will review the case to provide guidance and patient recommendations.
We appreciate your cooperation, patience and understanding as we continue to closely monitor the situation. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to Kim Hart.
Thank you for your ongoing and valued support of Project ECHO.
