The new Arizona law aims to protect senior citizens and requires agencies to disclose information like background checks, training, and service costs. Home care agencies are unlicensed and unregulated; new requirements will help consumers make informed care decisions. Some rules that distinguish Arizona’s home care industry from other states are:
A home care management software can help you abide by changing Arizona’s non-medical industry laws. Record keeping, maintaining billing, and automating payroll can be easy with GPS-enabled technology.
Responsively designed and feature-rich apps to seamlessly run your home care agency on the go.
GPS-enabled app to seamlessly manage caregiver visits.
Increase agency staff productivity and organize daily activities on-the-go.

Yes. Arizona has given its agencies the choice to use an EVV system provided by its state aggregator Sandata. Or, they may also choose an Alternate Arizona EVV system to meet business requirements or data collection specifications.
Every agency will have to maintain its employee information. However, Sandata will provide help to agencies with 80 or more clients. Sandata will aid with the one-time data upload into the system, after which the agency will be responsible for maintaining the EVV data. Additionally, home care software like CareSmartz360 helps with easy data migration through their open APIs.
The following is a high level summary of anticipated changes with the implementation of EVV:
|Things that Stay the Same||Things that Will be Different|
|Member choice of provider||Elimination of paper timesheets|
|Availability of services||Use of EVV devices|
|Member choice of individual direct care worker||How member/representative signature is collected|
|How services are provided||Verification is required by member/representative at the end of every visit/shift|
