Electronic Visit Verification, or EVV, is a technology solution which electronically verifies that home and health aide services are performed, introducing a new level of accountability and transparency for providers and payers. While EVV has been around for more than two decades, with the passing of the 21st Century CURES Act, Medicaid homecare providers are now required to implement EVV by 2020.
As part of this Act, visits must be electronically verified for the type, date, and location of service performed, the individual receiving the service, the caregiver or aide performing the service, and the time service begins and ends.
Providers have often adopted EVV as a stand-alone technology tool, resulting in a cluttered agency environment with multiple disparate systems. However, EVV should be viewed as the central engine that drives successful agency management.
HHAeXchange’s electronic visit verification system works seamlessly within your existing environment. Regardless of the method of EVV, when a caregiver completes a visit, the visit is automatically associated with the schedule and authorization for the services performed. Additionally, plan of care tasks and duties are also captured at the time of EVV clock-out.
