The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program supports the well-being of the most vulnerable families. This project will answer critical research questions about the impact of home visiting by sharing and leveraging existing data.

MIECHV carries out a continuous program of research and evaluation on the implementation and effectiveness of home visiting programs. Data are collected for performance measurement, fidelity monitoring, and administrative or programmatic needs. These rich sources provide an opportunity to advance the field’s understanding of precision home visiting—the elements that work best with particular types of families and contexts—without the cost of collecting additional data.

This collaborative project will facilitate a community of practice among representatives of evidence-based home visiting models. Together they will set goals, exchange knowledge, prioritize questions, and build their capacity to analyze secondary data. Ultimately, the project will develop strategies for sharing data to increase its power and precision and improve outcomes for families.
