This brief examines how using cross-systems data to create shared goals and outcomes can inspire meaningful change for families at a program level, and how those results can bring about long-term practice and systems-level changes. The need for a collaborative approach to mapping and collecting available data across systems and the use of data to decide where to direct resources is emphasized. The importance of facilitating practice improvement within a continuous quality improvement framework, and with a focus on identifying and resolving racial, ethnic, and other disparities is described. This brief provides examples of successes and challenges in using results to sustain systems change by Regional Partnership Grant projects.
