This evaluation brief defines measures of home visiting services called process indicators, describes how process indicators link to short- and long-term outcomes in home visiting evaluations, and provides an example illustrating the role of process indicators in evaluations.

This brief defines propensity score matching and other matching methods, covers steps in the matching process, offers suggestions for decreasing bias, presents a hypothetical example of matching in the home visiting context, and recommends resources to support high-quality matching.

Qualitative research, which explores how or why something occurs, can contribute new knowledge to the understanding of home visiting. While qualitative research is sometimes viewed as a less rigorous add-on to quantitative research, studies utilizing qualitative research methods—whether part of a mixed-methods or as a standalone approach—can be rigorously designed to provide reliable and trustworthy information.

This work is part of the Design Options for Home Visiting Evaluation (DOHVE) project, led by OPRE in collaboration with HRSA. ACF has partnered with JBA to conduct the DOHVE project.

This is the fourth of four modules providing home visiting research findings to inform pay for outcomes (PFO) feasibility studies and project development, including outcome selection, projected cost savings, and outcome payment pricing for PFO financial agreements.

Pay for outcomes (PFO) is a payment model that promotes innovative financing for social initiatives, connecting funding to outcomes and cost savings. The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 allows Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program awardees to implement PFO initiatives. PFO can help awardees expand services, improve outcomes, reach new or underserved populations, and/or engage new stakeholders.

This section introduces a four-module resource providing home visiting research findings to inform pay for outcomes (PFO) feasibility studies and project development, including outcome selection, projected cost savings, and outcome payment pricing for PFO financial agreements. The Introduction briefly describes PFO in the context of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program and gives an overview of the resource...

The legislation authorizing the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program requires the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to conduct a continuous program of research and evaluation activities to build knowledge around the implementation and effectiveness of home visiting programs.
