Streamlining In-Home Care with Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Technology

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) leverages advanced technology to ensure that patients receive the in-home care services they require. This system captures data via a mobile app or voice notification from a patient’s landline, confirming that caregivers are providing the needed services.

Simplified Workflow with User-Friendly Software

Ankota’s user-friendly software has been designed to make the EVV process straightforward and efficient, improving workflow and ensuring accurate recording of essential information for each care visit. Caregivers can easily follow the intuitive workflow on their mobile devices. In the background, EVV uses geofencing to verify that caregivers are at the correct location, alerting the office if there are any discrepancies.

Efficient Data Recording for Caregivers

Ankota’s solution enables caregivers to quickly log necessary information, freeing up more time for them to focus on their primary responsibility—caring for clients. After inputting the initial details, caregivers simply tap to start the visit, with the app automatically recording the date and time. All data is securely stored and compliant with HIPAA regulations. Logging out is also simplified with a single click. If connectivity is an issue, Ankota’s Offline Mode encrypts and stores the data, uploading it when the caregiver is back online. The EVV data is then transmitted to an aggregator and sent to Medicaid to support claims processing.

Understanding Alternative EVV Systems

An alternative EVV system refers to data collection software that is not mandated by a state’s Department of Health Services. These systems are commonly used in states with a "Closed" model for implementing the Medicaid EVV mandate under the 21st Century Cures Act. In these states, home care providers can select their preferred software solutions, which will work in conjunction with the state’s EVV system to ensure proper data integration and compliance.
