E-CARE is affiliated with the research programs of Department of Family Medicine, East Carolina University, Brody School of Medicine. The network is managed by a coordinator and directed by advisory staff including clinicians from primary care departments at East Carolina University.

E-CARE is a network of practicing clinicians in eastern North Carolina that is formed to ask and answer clinical and organizational questions central to primary health care. E-CARE is a Primary Care Practiced-Based Research Network as defined by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

E-CARE involves eastern North Carolina community-based clinicians and their staffs in activities designed to understand and improve primary care. E-CARE strives to link relevant clinical questions with research methods in community settings to produce valid scientific information. Relevant questions are identified by both community-based clinicians and E-CARE coordinators.

E-CARE welcomes the participation of all health service practitioners in eastern North Carolina. E-CARE also welcomes practicing clinicians outside of eastern North Carolina to join the network. The goals of certain E-CARE projects may be of a scope that address questions broader than those of eastern North Carolina clinicians.
