  • 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 was as a sort of technology for landline telephony, respectively. It was used to record any “call time”, in which one would call the patient’s home (both inbound and outbound). Many, actually, still use EVV for this.

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

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