"Because of NIPN, we created here in Alabama the Alabama Child Health Improvement Alliance (ACHIA).
Prior to NIPN being involved, Alabama had been very active in bringing quality improvement work to pediatricians in the state, but we had sort of hit a wall of where we could go through one of the main organizations--the Alabama chapter of the AAP."
NIPN's guidance helped ACHIA bring together all the key stakeholders around improving children's health: Children's Hospital of Alabama, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Alabama Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield (one of the largest payers in the state), and the Alabama Department of Public Health.
