EVV Model: Provider Choice Model | Implementation Deadline: January 01, 2021
CareSmartz360 is an all-in-one home care agency management solution that meets all EVV state requirements.
In a Provider Choice Model, states set requirements and standards for EVV vendors. Providers select an EVV vendor of choice that meets those requirements. EVV systems electronically verify the delivery of in-home personal care and home health service visits and document the precise time the service begins and ends. This can be achieved in a variety of ways, such as using mobile applications with Global Positioning System (GPS) capabilities, telephony, fixed devices, and biometric recognition.
Governing Body: Alaska Department of Health and Social Services
