Let’s face the facts:
The Electronic Visit Verification system for home care is one that has — to understate the matter — revolutionized the world of modern health care as we know it, especially as it relates to “live in care” altogether. It’s a jewel of a system, to say the least, and one could simply not over stress the overall importance of EVV. The ultimate effect of EVV on home care is one of the pillars of the 21st century in terms of Medicaid.
But what makes the importance of EVV so vital?
Well, for one, all PCS and HHCS services need it. That’s a fact. The law requires it. And furthermore, all Medicaid-funded initiatives under it must possess it, by state law.
To add on top of that, EVV’s unique multi-point tracking system is ultimately brought into the picture so as to give home care providers, as well as their respective patients, a more clear (yet no less thorough) bird’s eye view, so to speak, on where they stand with their care. They can more quickly, easily and effectively look up past and present patient records, payment details, options for care, treatment plans, automated messaging and internal communications calendars, and so much else.
It truly offers a more modernized system that you can carry in the palm of your hand. And as such, this system’s been brought into effect to not only simplify many lives but also to help the U.S. government keep better control over the health care of its states.
