Visit Tracker Web already fulfilled 95% of the requirements needed by MIECHV grantees in Illinois and has been selected to be their MIECHV software of choice. A couple items will be customized for their needs so that 100% of their benchmark data will be collected in Visit Tracker Web. Programmers will be adding contraception tracking and additional assessments in use by Illinois home visitors. The PICCOLO, KIDI, and Parenting Stress Index are among the assessments that will be added. The HOME assessment was recently finished and is also in use in Illinois.
Illinois joins other states such as Texas, Washington, Missouri and others in choosing Visit Tracker for their MIECHV needs. These states have PAT, HFA, Even Start and other home visiting groups that will join together in using Visit Tracker. One user noted, “In less than 30 days we have more usable information in the system than we were able to input in the system we replaced after an entire year and we spent a fraction of the cost – Thank you Visit Tracker!”
