The Massachusetts Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Impact Project (MECCS) works with multidisciplinary partners at the state and community level to strengthen the system of care for children birth to five and improve outcomes for children and families.
MECCS supports teams in Chelsea and Springfield in participation in a nationally-led Collaborative Innovation and Improvement Network (CoIIN) to develop two-generation approaches to improving young children’s developmental skills and provider use of data to enhance program delivery and address service gaps. At the state level, MECCS engages interagency stakeholders in determining how to best capture indicators that measure child developmental health and family well-being in an integrated early childhood data system.
