FL MIECHV tracks its effectiveness and impact on the families served by collecting and analyzing data on program performance and participant outcomes. Enrollment and retention of both families and staff are also tracked at the state and local level. Our goal is to ensure resources are appropriately utilized and that families receive the full benefits of the intervention.
FL MIECHV required that local MIECHV programs collect data to meet the requirement of the federal funder. These data often align with the home visiting program model’s data collection requirements, reducing the need for redundant data collection.
FL MIECHV data are recorded in the Florida Home Visting Information System (FLOHVIS). FLOHVIS is a customized, web-based data system that uses Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) software to capture MIECHV data in a user-friendly and streamlined way. FLOHVIS also offers users dynamic reports for monitoring and improving data quality and performance. Each local FL MIECHV program has a designated number of trained FLOHVIS users.
FL MIECHV prepares regular reports that are used for monitoring performance and for driving improvement efforts. Reports that focus on staffing, enrollment, family retention, geographic areas served, and home visits completed are submitted to the federal funding agency monthly and quarterly.
Performance Measurement reports are submitted annually to the federal funding agency. They include demographics, service utilization, and clinical indicators of enrolled families, as well as an outcomes report on 19 performance measures. Click here for more about these performance measures.
