The system verifies a number of factors, like:

  • Service location
  • Service date
  • Service type
  • Specified person providing such service
  • Specified person providing such service
  • Service terms/commencement & end dates

And it is very interesting to note that the way EVV was first used as a technology for landline telephony. It was used for recording any “call time,” in which one would call the patient’s home (both inbound and outbound). Most of the people still rely on this method.

But since we have more intelligent devices out there these days, like smartphones, it’s now easier to do as much as others are doing and instead verifying their visits that way (by GPS phone location, etc.). Others use PCs and tablets for EVV purposes.

There are other great uses out there, such as triangulation of calls for cell service (mostly in a non-smartphone). Indeed, did you even know that was an option on the list? Well, it sure is!
