The Med-QUEST Division (MQD) is implementing Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) in response to federal requirements set forth in the 21st Century Cures Act. The EVV system implemented by MQD will capture the type of service, date of the service, time the service started and ended, individual receiving the service, person providing the service, and the location of the service.
Governing Body: Med-QUEST Division (MQD)
EVV is still to be implemented in most of the states with different guidelines and regulations. We’re keeping up with the updates related to EVV implementation and if there is something we haven’t included, please share with us.

Section 1903(l)(5)(A) provides that the system must be able to electronically verify, with respect to visits conducted as part of personal care services or home health care services, the following:
Section 1903(l)(2) also requires states to provide for a stakeholder process to allow input into the state’s implementation of the EVV requirement from providers of PCS and home health services, beneficiaries, family caregivers and other stakeholders.
Yes, Hawaii can now implement EVV till January 1st, 2021 as per the approval of Good Faith Effort Exemption Request. Home care agencies in Hawaii can implement the same by 2021.
The Electronic Visit Verification system can record multiple visits to a client per day. Each caregiver has a unique identifier, and EVV records created by that identifier are caregiver-specific. The EVV solution does not limit the number of services a client can receive in one day.
EVV allows verification of an employee’s location, hours of work for payroll and billing, visits being reported are actually taking place, and that the patients are getting the care they require. Better care delivery, gapless communications, enhanced productivity of the staff, and automation of key processes are some other benefits of implementing EVV. It also helps to curb fraud and ensure transparency in care quality with continuous tracking and monitoring.
CareSmartz360 is integrated with the selected aggregator, Sandata to adhere to all the compliance and contribute to the best possible care delivery. A primary feature is easy to use by the staff, caregivers, patients, agency owners and patient’s family.
