Home visiting is an important component of the early childhood (EC) landscape. However, states often fail to prioritize home visiting data when developing their early childhood integrated data systems (ECIDS). Home visiting represents a range of services, models, and programs, each with different data requirements, so integrating the data can be challenging. Often, home visiting data is disconnected across different models, as well as from other EC data. To address this challenge to data integration, states can take an incremental approach, integrating one aspect of home visiting data at a time, rather than tackling it all at once. The advantages to taking an incremental approach when integrating home visiting data with other EC data include the following:
The purpose of this resource is to provide states with examples of various ways to integrate their home visiting data into their ECIDS over time. This resource will highlight five examples of how states can approach this incremental integration of home visiting data.
