Service delivery forms
The home visitor also administers the Ages & Stages Questionnaires-3 (ASQ-3) and the Ages & Stages Questionnaires: Social/Emotional-2 (ASQ: SE-2) at specified points throughout infant service delivery.
During the certification process, MIHP representatives assess the fidelity of a provider’s implementation. To become fully certified, prospective providers must undergo a three-year process that involves technical assistance visits from MIHP consultants and certification reviews to verify the provider is implementing the model properly.
No information is available on what occurs during the recertification process.
Fidelity standards are outlined in the MIHP Certification Tool, available on the MIHP website. Each MIHP provider is evaluated on service delivery (for example, home visit dosage, completion of the risk assessment and development of a plan of care, and communications and coordination with the medical provider) as well as overall model compliance.
