At the time of EVV implementation, the agency will be provided detailed instruction on how to set up each caregiver in the EVV system and provide them unique IDs that are used for visit verification. The EVV system will know and use each caregivers unique ID and information to automatically verify who they are when they record visit information.

Whenever there is a change in care plan, the EVV system will send the alert with a pop-up message to the caregiver.

This means that required care will be delivered by an appropriately credentialed caregiver.

Ideally, in such a situation, it is recommended that the caregiver should capture the start time and end time as they transition between care activities.

The technology used in EVV system to verify the caregiver’s location will only record locations at the start and end of the care delivery. For any other time, it does not record anything.
