OSU Medicine's Project ECHO launches COVID-19 service line
March 25, 2020
TULSA– Governor Kevin Stitt declared a state of emergency for all 77 Oklahoma counties due to coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns on March 15, 2020.
In response and in an effort to rapidly disseminate as much information as possible on best practices for hospitals and health care providers, Dr. Kayse Shrum, president of Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences, directed the creation of a Project ECHO COVID-19 service line that can address the resources needed for Oklahoma’s rural health systems.
“As a publicly supported academic health center, it’s our obligation at OSU Medicine to step up to meet the challenges presented by the COVID-19 health crisis. As Governor Stitt’s Secretary of Science and Innovation and a member of his Solution Task Force on COVID-19, we are charged with deploying as quickly as possible all available resources across the state to help abate the disease in light of its rapid onset,” said Shrum.
"Project ECHO COVID-19 service line allows us to share our knowledge and health care best practices with rural health providers so that they can be better equipped to diagnose, test, and treat patients with COVID-19."
