On August 7, 2018, the Department released an informational memo regarding the implementation of EVV in Colorado. Colorado’s EVV solution includes multiple point-of-care visit verification technologies, such as mobile phone application, telephonic, and web-portal. The State EVV Solution will also include an optional Scheduling Module which allows providers to create client service schedules and a Consumer Directed Suite for use within the Consumer Directed Attendant Support Services (CDASS) program.

  • Mobile Visit Verification (MVV): A GPS enabled mobile application downloaded on a smartphone or tablet.
  • Telephony Visit Verification (TVV): A system accessed via toll-free number, accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The state will also employ web-based functionality for use by provider agencies.

  • Provider Portal: Provider agencies utilizing the State EVV Solution will have access to the portal to view and modify visit activity, and in limited circumstances, create EVV records. All information entered via the provider portal is notated as a manual entry and will be subject to Department audit.
  • Data Aggregator: The Data Aggregator is a behind-the-scenes tool used to interface with both the State EVV Solution and provider choice systems to transmit EVV data to the interchange. Providers will have read-only access to a web portal in the Data Aggregator to view visit data.
