With a Goal of Touching One Billion People by 2025, Dr Arora will Discuss his Transformative Disruptive Innovation, Project ECHO, that Improves Capacity and Access to Specialty Care in Rural and Under Served Populations in the US and Throughout the World

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2015

The Society of Physician Entrepreneurs (SoPE) New Mexico Chapter is hosting a presentation by Dr. Sanjeev Arora, from the University of New Mexico, an internationally renowned healthcare social entrepreneur and a leader in the high impact effort to transform patient care. Dr. Arora’s work has been featured in publications throughout the world including the New York Times and has received global recognition.

The presentation titled “Transforming Patient Care Through Global Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship” will be held on Tuesday, November 10, 2015 between 6 – 8 PM at the First Citizens Bank NM Corporate Office, 4701 Lang Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM.

Dr. Arora will discuss his globally transformative disruptive innovation, Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) that improves capacity and access to specialty care for rural and under served urban populations. This low-cost, high-impact intervention is accomplished by linking expert inter-disciplinary specialist teams with primary care practitioners, including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers and community health workers. Using videoconferencing and case-based learning, experts mentor and share their expertise with primary care clinicians, allowing them to offer a level of specialty care, typically only seen at major academic medical centers, locally to patients with complex health conditions.

Founded in 2003, Project ECHO® located at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center now operates in 64 hubs for nearly 40 diseases and complex conditions in 26 states and 11 countries outside the U.S.

"Dr Arora and Project ECHO are global leaders in healthcare innovation and a catalyst to bringing much needed specialty care to patients who historically have not had access to these services," comments Anne Keshen, an investor and Board member of The Society of Physician Entrepreneurs in Los Angeles and New Mexico."Project Echo has a far reaching impact on patient care with infinite possibilities for growth. Dr Arora is one of the leaders in transforming patient care and in healthcare innovation."

The evening is sponsored by First Citizens Bank and the Mary Anne Keshen & Family Charitable Trust.
