The Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP) is a state-sponsored home visiting program for Medicaid-enrolled pregnant women and new mothers in Michigan, and has been shown to be effective at improving birth outcomes among program participants. Yet MIHP is persistently underutilized across the state, and many women who initially agree to enroll miss their first appointment.
Reducing No Shows in the Maternal Infant Health Program
The Lab has partnered with Michigan Medicine (MM) and its MIHP program to evaluate the impact of a modest cash incentive in reducing no-shows among MIHP participants who receive prenatal care at MM.
Increasing Utilization of Home Visiting through the Maternal Infant Health Program
The Lab has partnered with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to conduct a series of descriptive analyses of Medicaid claims data to better understand who the program is and is not reaching.
