Electronic Visit Verification
Easily document when and where services take place with our HIPAA-compliant EVV Mobile App
Meet Compliance Requirements For Electronic Visit Verification
EVV stands for electronic visit verification and it’s a way to confirm where and when a caregiver provides services for a consumer. As of January 1, 2021, all home- and community-based service providers must comply with the electronic visit verification of Medicaid-personal care services. This mandate was established as a way to reduce Medicaid fraud and improve care provider accountability by tracking when and where visits take place. Although some providers may see electronic visit verification as just another requirement that needs to be met, others see it as a tool that can help streamline scheduling and documentation tasks while reducing paperwork.
How Technology Can Help
Using a web-based EVV software can make scheduling, documentation, and reporting easier by cutting down on the amount of time spent filling out paperwork, reducing errors, and providing a central location for accessing health records, care plans, and consumer notes. EVV software that also has GPS tracking capabilities (like the one FOCOS Innovations offers) makes it easy to pinpoint when a caregiver starts and ends services.

Electronic Visit Verification Requirements
According to the EVV policy, care providers must be able to provide electronic verification of six key elements:
- Name of individual receiving the service
- Type of service performed
- Date of service
- Location of service
- Name of service provider
- Service beginning and ending times

Benefits of Our Electronic Visit Verification Software
The EVV software from FOCOS Innovations does so much more than just track the basic details of service visits for compliance purposes, it’s a tool you can use to streamline processes, track KPIs, and improve your business. Here are some of the ways our EVV software can help:
Ease of Documentation
Reduce the time it takes to complete documentation and empower caregivers with all of the data they need to make informed decisions. Through the mobile app, caregivers can document service task details, enter progress notes,, and even include pictures. With our EVV software, you can eliminate mountains of paperwork and store all of your caregiver and consumer notes in one cloud-based system.
Better Transparency and Accountability
Our EVV software has role-based access controls, making it easy to share information between providers, caregivers, government agencies, and consumers. Having everything in one place encourages better accountability and builds trust with consumers and their family members.
Get more done in less time by streamlining workflows and reducing the time it takes to complete documentation. Because you’ll have better insight into caregiver location and how long it takes to complete each task, you can manage schedules and find opportunities that improve operational efficiency.
Maintaining one central location for all documentation improves communication and helps to prevent errors. Our EVV software allows care providers to access notes and consumer care plans right at the point-of-care. During their visit, new data can be entered and made instantly available to anyone else who has approved access.
Simplify Reporting and Audits
In the days prior to electronic documentation, service providers had no choice but to maintain extensive paperwork files. Keeping paper records is time-consuming and inefficient, especially when it comes to reporting and audits. Every time a request for information is made, someone has to sort through piles of documents, and creating data reports can take all day when you have to pull the information from hand-written pieces of paper. Keeping all of your records electronically in one easy-to-access location makes accessing the information you need easy and efficient.
Ensure you’re in compliance with electronic visit verification technology that makes it easy to verify when and where a caregiver has provided services. Not only can visits be electronically documented, but there’s also no disputing the time and location of visits with our GPS-enabled software. Caregivers simply check in using the mobile app and document the details of the service visit.
Provide Better Quality of Care
Electronic visit verification software isn’t just about being able to prove services have been provided so you can pass an audit, it’s about doing what’s best for the consumer and ensuring they are receiving the care they need when they need it. Home- and community-based service providers have a big responsibility caring for consumers in their home. EVV software is a valuable tool that can make your job easier and help you run more efficiently — all while improving consumer satisfaction.
