Electronic Visit Verification

What is EVV?

EVV stands for "Electronic Visit Verification," and it is part of a joint Senate and House of Representatives bill often referred to as "The 21st Century Cures Act." This mandate is required to be enacted by each state for all Medicaid personal care services (PCS) and home health care services (HHCS). As the name suggests, this entails the leveraging of technology (such as GPS-enabled mobile devices) to electronically verify visits for these services, as they are rendered off-site in a home- or community-based setting.

The primary information required to be collected during visits includes:
  • The date of service provided
  • The start time and end time for the service provided
  • The type of service performed
  • The location of the service provided
  • Information about the service provider
While this EVV process can present its challenges, deTASO's Home Care application provides a robust yet efficient means for direct support professionals (DSPs) to log these services. Visits can be recorded using the Home Care application on the DSP's smartphone, or from the client's landline phone using deTASO's IVR (interactive voice response) system.
Our team here at deTASO has worked closely with several aggregators (the firms who verify visit data before billing), and we are partnered with an EVV vendor who is integrated with (and transmits data to) multiple aggregators across multiple states. We are proud that this makes us adequately equipped to collect, verify, store, and transmit the required data in all open EVV states (meaning those states that have not mandated one state-sponsored EVV vendor).

For further information, please consult your state's EVV requirements, or feel free to reach out to our team here. We would be happy to hear your concerns and, if desired, send you our EVV Webinar recording for more information on our solution.
