In order to support the growth of the ECHO movement, Project ECHO® collects participation data for each ECHO™ program. This data allows Project ECHO to measure, analyse, and report on the movement’s reach. It is used in reports, on maps and visualisations, for research, for communications and surveys, for data quality assurance activities, and for decision-making related to new initiatives.
