Quality Improvement through EVV

How EVV Can Help Home Care?

The EVV software solution we know today is literally laden with enriching benefits to the overall ‘layout’ we’ve come to know as modern health care.

A good EVV system will provide supportive documentation to support all of the services provided to the client. It will demonstrative when the care begins and ends, the type of care provided and the signature or approval from the client who received the care in the comfort of his or her own home.

An EVV system works well with numerous types of staff training you wish to show to your employees, even on how to use the EVV itself. The benefits, on that point alone, are probably endless, and a more informed workforce will lead to a better quality of service to the patient overall, who is, in this case, the customer.

Compliance, to further note, is an elemental factor that carries greater and greater benefit, of which your home care business ought to be honing in on and taking full benefit of — if it isn’t already, that is. In terms of EVV compliance, we can note that this has been carefully measured by the rate of adoption, in accordance with all mandated EVV tech.

But that’s not all; in fact, the overall cost of implementation, for a system like EVV, is significantly reduced as well, thereby helping your business or practice to have more time, funds and other resources to work on what really matters, which should be both patient success and mindful profit.

Plus, EVV’s systems are, for the most part, quite easily integrated with a plethora of other online Medicaid programs and protocols out on the web today. This means that most of the time, you do not have to simply give up one in place of the other but may get the full benefits of both together.

In other words, the EVV won’t work against any other systems you’ve been using so far but will instead supplement them in anyways it can. It will even add to what they may be lacking on numerous ends. That sounds like a “win-win” scenario for everyone, now, does it not?

On that last point, some data systems that can easily integrate with EVV have been known to include FMS, E&E, and MMIS, using various choice models, too. There’s also the benefit of an enhanced estimated 90% federal match to go with that last point mentioned.

Not bad, right? So for all these reasons, and several more, quality of patient care can still see its best days ahead through the right use of Electronic Visit Verification (EVV).
