About HV CoIIN

The Maternal and Child Health Bureau’s (MCHB) Division of Home Visiting and Early Childhood Systems has launched a Home Visiting Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (HV CoIIN). Initiated in September, 2013 through a three-year cooperative agreement with Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC), the mission of the HV CoIIN is to achieve breakthrough improvements in select process and outcome measures, including benchmark areas legislatively mandated for the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program, while reducing or maintaining program costs. The mission also includes developing the means to spread the initial learning and improvements more widely within participating organizations and to other MIECHV grantees and local implementing agencies. 

The HV CoIIN is a time-limited learning activity (18–24 months) that brings together and supports a group of MIECHV grantees and teams from local implementing agencies (LIAs) to seek improvement in topic areas that are of concern to home visiting and that are “ripe” for improvement. The ultimate goal is to identify evidence- and experience-based practices that result in breakthrough change if implemented consistently and with fidelity.

The HV CoIIN Journey

HV CoIIN 1.0 (2013-2017) launched the first national home visiting initiative using the Breakthrough Series (BTS) with awardees and local home visiting agencies to improve outcomes and to develop the resources and conditions for further scale efforts.

HV CoIIN 2.0 (2017-2022) built on the success of HV CoIIN 1.0 by spreading improvements in previously tested topics and continuing to test in New Topic areas to ready for scale.

HV CoIIN 3.0

HV CoIIN 3.0 (2022 - 2027) will engage 30 awardees and 300 LIAs across three cohorts in its Scale efforts and in two New Topic CoIINs. With health equity and families as leaders in CQI as the cornerstone of our work, HV CoIIN 3.0 seeks to continue to grow and expand across more communities, successfully testing, refining, and scaling improvements in home visiting practices.  Find out more about HV CoIIN 3.0 here.

Our Mission

HV CoIIN 3.0 will continue to build capacity for continuous quality improvement (CQI) among awardees and home visiting teams in order to unleash the potential of home visiting programs to realize large-scale improvements in population health by (1) providing group and individualized teaching and coaching in CQI practices and application of those practices to content areas(2) building infrastructure and facilitating intentional opportunities for networked learning, and (3) prioritizing and providing guidance, resources, and support on health equity and engaging families as partners and leaders in home visiting program improvement.

Our Aim

To build a movement and capability for ongoing learning that improves maternal and child health outcomes for families in home visiting by engaging 30 MIECHV awardees and 300 local implementing agencies to scale improvements and meet shared aims in identified topics by 2027.
