Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) would like to inform our providers about Project Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) clinics now available through the Indiana University School of Medicine. Currently, there are several weekly ECHO clinics. The clinics are free of charge to participating Anthem providers.


Project ECHO is a learning and guided-practice model providing medical education to help providers increase workforce capability, enhance best practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. Clinic sessions meet online using no-cost Zoom video conferencing and consist of a brief didactic presentation on related topics, followed by case presentations and discussions by participating providers. The participating group of community providers works through each case in a collaborative fashion with guidance from the expert multidisciplinary Project ECHO facilitators.


A team of experts in these topics, led by the Indiana University Department of Psychiatry, will work with participants who want to learn more about opioid use disorder, pregnancy and OUD, neonatal abstinence syndrome, case management, jail services and first responders. Free continuing medical education credit (CME) will be provided to participants. 


Anthem and the Indiana University School of Medicine’s Division of Continuing Medical Education collaborate to provide lifelong learning opportunities that enable health care professionals to improve performance in practice. CME credit is provided to all participants through the Indiana University School of Medicine’s Division of Continuing Medical Education.
