The mission of the NYKidney Transplant Consortium is to improve utilization of kidneys from deceased and living donors, and improve access and outcomes of kidney transplantation.
Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (Project ECHO®) seeks to share education among the dialysis and transplant communities through teleECHO clinics, and to monitor education outcomes. The ECHO model is achieved through the creation of ECHO “hubs” or regional centers, in which partner dialysis sites or “spokes” connect through teleECHO clinics, gaining specialty expertise and knowledge.
