Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Networks – MCH Landscape
Compiled by AMCHP Staff
Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Networks (CoIINs) are teams of federal, state and local leaders working together to tackle a common problem by applying quality improvement methods (e.g., Plan-Do-Study-Act cycles) and engaging in collaborative learning. Using technology to remove geographic barriers, participants with a collective vision or common aim share ideas, best practices and lessons learned, then track their progress using shared measures. Over the past few years, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), along with federal, state – including Title V – and local partners have used CoIIN or CoIIN-like approaches to develop common aims, use and share evidence-based strategies, and use shared metrics and real-time data in order to improve maternal and child health outcomes.
CoIINs supported by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) address a range of topics across the life course, including maternal health, infant mortality, newborn screening, home visiting, child health and safety, school-based health, children and youth with special health care needs, adolescent and young adult health, healthy weight and oral health. Below is a quick overview of the current HRSA-supported CoIINs and CoIIN-like projects, along with related Title V National Performance Measures (NPMs).
