Scan-Echo is the acronym for Specialty Care Access Network – Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes. It represents an extension of VA video health care beyond treating individual patients. Scan-echo’s goal is to generate expertise across practices and extend specialty care to those who need it.

The San Francisco PADRECC, uses their monthly Scan-Echo to discuss aspects of Deep Brain Stimulation. Each 1.5 hour session, includes a presentation from one or more movement disorders specialists, discussion of case studies, and can review specific patients submitted by providers. 

Susan Heath, MSN, RN
of the San Francisco VAHCS hosts the DBS program. Scan-Echo is a novel way of connecting VA providers around the country in a 90 minute collaborative and educational session using video technology.

The videoteleconferencing (Vtel) system allows attendees to see each other and communicate live as if ‘rounding’ in a single location. The program goal is to offer high-quality clinical experience for VA clinicians who wish to increase their expertise in Deep Brain Stimulation patient management. The sessions are designed to discuss clinical management strategies for implanted DBS patients. Topics include patient selection, tailoring the target based on symptomatology and programming stratagems.
