EVV is pretty much what it says. Electronic Visit Verification. It’s a time and attendance process to automatically verify Time & Attendance. Think of it as your time clock. Just like any other job there is an expectation that you are at the job, on time and ready to work.
Section 12006 of the 21st Century Cures Act requires all states in the United States to implement the use of EVV for Medicaid-funded personal care services since 1/1/2020
Empire Home Health Care Inc. in Philadelphia has implemented HHAeXchange and there are 3 modes of EVV. Mobile app, land line & FOBs.
EVV can help improve quality of care by making caregiver activities transparent and measurable. Also, EVV reduces the likelihood for error or fraud by identifying the client, recording the individual caregiver’s location and clock-in and clock-out times, and services provided.
No need for paper anymore! There is also a less likelihood for error with the ability to clock-in and clock out seamlessly.
