Collaborative Improvement & Innovation Network (CoIIN) to Reduce Infant Mortality

The Collaborative Improvement & Innovation Network (CoIIN) initiative was launched in July 2012 in U.S. Public Health Regions IV and VI by the federal Bureau of Maternal and Child Health. The initiative aims to facilitate collaborative learning and adoption of proven quality improvement principles and practices across 13 states to reduce infant mortality and improve birth outcomes. The initiative provides a platform for states to learn from one another as well as from national experts, to share best practices and lessons learned and to track progress. The initiative has five strategic action teams with expert leaders and a team member from each state. The five teams are:

At least one representative from Alabama is on each of the National strategic action teams. Alabama also created a state team for each of the five strategic action teams and has appointed a CoIIN director to coordinate all CoIIN efforts both statewide and nationally.
