The University of Washington First Episode Psychosis team held its first FEP ECHO Clinic in February 2018. The clinic follows the Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) Model. The team is using state-of-the-art telehealth technology and clinical management tools to provide consultation and to support professional development efforts across the Washington State New Journeys early psychosis intervention network. Currently, clinicians from four coordinated specialty care teams are participating on a monthly basis.
The UW consultation “hub” team is comprised of (L to R) Bryan Stiles, Dr. Carolyn Brenner, Dr. Maria Monroe-DeVita (ECHO Clinic Director), Dr. Sarah Kopelovich and Jonathan Beard.
