The check-in and check-out information will still be captured and stored locally on the phone. Once the phone connectivity is reestablished, the visit details will be forwarded to the AuthentiCare® database.
There is no cost to providers for using the AuthentiCare® system that includes electronic billing, Interactive Voice Response (IVR), and Web access to the system and report generation. However, it is the responsibility of the provider’s PCAs to provide their own mobile devices (i.e., Android phones, Apple iPhone or Android tablet).
