Enhancing Home Care with Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Technology

 

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a critical tool that ensures individuals receive the in-home care services they require. This technology utilizes mobile phone apps or voice notifications from a patient's landline to confirm that caregivers are providing the necessary care at the right times and locations.

Simplifying the EVV Process with User-Friendly Software

Ankota’s intuitive software is designed to streamline the EVV process, enhancing workflow and making it easy to record essential details of each care visit. Caregivers can follow a straightforward workflow on their mobile devices. The software checks their location against the registered client’s address using geofencing technology, ensuring the caregiver is at the correct location. If any discrepancies arise, the system immediately notifies the office.

Efficient and Accurate Data Entry

Ankota’s software allows caregivers to quickly log necessary information, giving them more time to focus on their primary duty—caring for clients. Once the initial information is entered, caregivers simply tap to start the visit, and the app automatically logs the date and time. All information is securely stored and complies with HIPAA regulations.

Logging out is just as easy. Even in areas with unreliable WiFi, Ankota’s Offline Mode encrypts and stores the data, uploading it when the caregiver is back online. 

Understanding Alternative EVV Systems

Alternative EVV systems are those not provided or mandated by a state’s Department of Health Services. These systems are usually used in states with a "Closed" model for implementing the Medicaid EVV mandate from the 21st Century Cures Act. In these states, home care providers can choose their preferred software solutions, which will then work with the state’s EVV system to ensure proper data integration and compliance.
