Participants

 

The first HV CoIIN cohort includes 13 grantees: ten states, two tribes, and one not-for-profit. As part of the application process, these MIECHV grantees were asked to identify local implementing agencies (LIAs) that were interested and ready to take part in this important project. Thirty-six LIAs among the thirteen grantees were identified. These LIAs have formed quality improvement teams that lead the improvement and innovation work in their own organizations. The project recommended that the teams, at a minimum, be comprised of:

  • Agency level lead;
  • Day-to-day supervisor;
  • MIECHV Home visitor(s); and
  • Family recipient(s).

Each team is expected to work on one chosen improvement topic and the innovation area of family engagement. Teams learn from the collaborative process and apply small-scale tests to help successful change become part of everyday practice. Senior leaders guide and support the local teams and maintain a critical role in sustaining change. These teams engage in a series of Learning Sessions and monthly calls that give the members iterative opportunities to reflect on and refine their efforts.
