Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a technology solution which electronically verifies whether the home and community-based services are actually delivered to people needing those services.
EVV is a tool for electronically capturing point-of-service information for certain home and community-based services. The Cures Act requires states to implement an EVV System by January 1, 2021. It is a federal requirement of all states to verify certain things about all waiver-funded personal care services and home health services.
EVV systems can verify seven data elements:
- Type of service performed
- Individual receiving the service
- Date of the service
- Location of the service delivery
- Individual providing the service
- Time the service begins and ends
- Shift verification
The North Dakota Autism Center was chosen by the state of North Dakota to implement this technology a year early in 2020. Since then, NDAC has been beta testing EVV and have been providing Therap with suggestions to improve the system.
