The federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau is sponsoring the national Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CoIIN) (exit DHS) to Reduce Infant Mortality. National and federal partners include:
- Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP);
- Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO);
- Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS);
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC);
- CityMatCH; and
- March of Dimes (MOD).
Region V states (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin) have joined the 13 states in Regions IV and VI to find what works and scale up to the best interventions at the national level. The CoIIN will employ the science of continuous quality improvement (CQI), a shared workspace online, and a data dashboard.
