Data Collection & Analysis

Data Collection & Analysis ensures ongoing capacity for continuous quality improvement, a  Structural Requirement of HMG. Data is collected throughout all Components of the HMG system, including Child Health Care Provider Outreach, Family & Community Outreach, and Centralized Access Point.

The collection of a set of shared metrics across the HMG National Affiliate Network advances understanding of collective impact, informing the national narrative regarding the impact of HMG on children and families across the country. The collection of locally-sourced metrics enable HMG affiliates to benchmark progress, identify areas of opportunity and systemic gaps, determine potentially advantageous partnerships, and guide strategic quality improvement projects.
