Why a Dermatology ECHO?

Many Missourians have no meaningful access to expert dermatologic care. Late diagnosis of skin cancers and increased costs from misdiagnosis create an undue burden for patients. Early access to expert care saves lives, reduces health care costs and improves access to care for thousands of Missourians.

How Does This ECHO Work?

The Dermatology ECHO improves timely, accurate and cost-efficient care for patients with common skin diseases. Primary care providers join a team of dermatologists to discuss best practices and evidence-based approaches to:

  • Early-stage identification of skin cancers
  • Complex skin infections
  • Common skin conditions like acne, rosacea and psoriasis
  • Ulcers and unusual skin appearance

Topics for Case-Based Learning and Discussion Include:

  • Acne
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Bacterial skin infections
  • Basal cell carcinoma
  • Blisters
  • Common benign skin growths
  • Cutaneous disorders common in solid organ transplant patients
  • Cutaneous manifestations of cancer therapies
  • Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma
  • Dermatitis
  • Drug reactions
  • Fungal infections in adults and children
  • Gynecologic dermatology
  • Hidradenitis suppurativa
  • Infestations/bites
  • LGBTQ dermatology needs
  • Manifestations of rheumatologic disease
  • Melanoma
  • Molluscum contagiosum
  • Non-melanoma skin cancer and criteria for Mohs surgery
  • Petechiae purpura and vasculitis
  • Pruritus
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea
  • Squamous cell carcinoma
  • Stasis dermatitis and leg ulcers
  • The red face
  • The red leg
  • Urticaria
