What you need to know about Electronic Visit Verification

4/12/2017 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM Eastern Standard Time

Presenter: Diane Link, RN, MHA Senior Clinical Consultant, BlackTree Healthcare Consulting

The homecare industry is in a constant state of change and regulation.  With increased regulation from payers and policy alike, home care providers are subject to much greater levels of scrutiny.  The ability for providers to demonstrate that their caregivers and clinicians are performing the visits that were ordered is one such area of focus.  Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is the mechanism by which these providers are ensuring that their patients are receiving the necessary care when they need it. 

In this FREE webinar, sponsored by CellTrak, Darby Anderson of Addus HomeCare will provide education on Electronic Visit Verification.  This will be a holistic view of where EVV came from, where it is , and where it is going in the Homecare landscape.

Description

In December 2016, President Obama signed the 21st Century Cures Act. The act itself covers a variety of topics – and notably requires states to implement electronic visit verification (EVV) for Medicaid Personal Care services and Home Health Care Services.  EVV offers many benefits to agencies and care providers, and choosing the right solution can lead to improved operating efficiency, caregiver communication, quality of care, and client satisfaction. After this webinar, you’ll walk away with information about:

  • Why the 21st Century Cures Act is so important to home care agencies 
  • What is EVV and different EVV options 
  • The pros and cons of the various options 
  • Compliance challenges for multi-state providers
  • Why an open standard is important 
  • What you can do to influence an open standard 
  • Why going beyond the simple proof of visit can do more for your agency
