Show Me ECHO has introduced a 'lived experience' role by including patients and caregivers into some of its ECHO Hub Teams. Grounded in the patient-centered care model, this role provides insights into the lived experience of patients and caregivers experiencing chronic conditions. The goals are to improve patient outcomes, strengthen authentic communication and partnership between providers, patients, and patients' support systems, and to enhance local communities' ability to support its members dealing with chronic conditions.
