What are the technical requirements?

Health-care providers can participate using a laptop, hand-held mobile device, or a room set up for small group videoconferencing. Paediatric Project ECHO uses a cloud-based videoconferencing system called Zoom. Zoom reliably runs on both high and low speed internet connections, enabling access for providers in remote locations. If a camera is unavailable, a telephone can be used to dial in.
