STORM + STORM TeleECHO
Sickle Treatment and Outcomes Research in the Midwest (STORM) is a regional sickle cell network, established to improve outcomes for individuals with sickle cell disease (SCD) living in the Midwest. One goal of STORM is to increase provider knowledge about evidence-based management of SCD. STORM TeleECHO, a replication of the Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) telementoring model, uses web technology to link expert inter-disciplinary specialist teams with clinicians, allowing experts to mentor clinicians, provide feedback on difficult patient cases and share expertise via monthly case presentation and didactic educational sessions.
