EVV Software

Alora integrates EVV into a complete, easy-to-use, agency management solution.

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) System

 

If your agency hasn’t adopted Electronic Visit Verification – well, that day is coming.

Following the federal 21st Century Cures Act, all U.S. states are required to implement EVV solutions for home care agencies providing services funded by Medicaid.

 

Your agency has a choice to make: 1) Manage EVV separately through a stand-alone system or 2) manage it through full-solution software that has EVV built-in. If you choose the latter, you need to look at agency management software from a vendor that’s certified by your state as an “alternate” vendor.

 

Alora is an approved EVV vendor in a multitude of states and additionally has been designated as an alternate EVV vendor in numerous states as well.  In a number of other states, we’re waiting for the states to announce their EVV requirements so that we can tailor our EVV solution to meet state regulations.

WHY ALORA SOFTWARE FOR EVV

 

No other software company has more expertise in EVV than Alora. Here’s why:

 

We were fully integrating EVV into our platform even before federal legislation passed; and we’ve been tailoring our solution to meet the exact requirements and processes of state Medicaid agencies, which vary from state to state.

 

Alora was the first alternate software solution provider authorized by several states that have implemented EVV.

 

By choosing Alora’s award-winning cloud-based emr for home health system,  you’ll not only meet the EVV requirement – all of your EVV activities and information will be completely tied into scheduling, billing, payroll and every other aspect of your home care services.

 

Here’s what EVV by Alora looks like for your agency:

 

  • Your caregiver opens the Alora app on any mobile device and clicks “Start Visit.”
  • Alora immediately begins capturing complete information about the visit, integrating it into your agency workflow data.
  • You can monitor live visits as they occur inside the client’s home.
  • You see delayed visits and no-shows with up-to-the-minute updates.
  • You can speed up billing – because all information from the visit is immediately reflected in claims and payroll processes.
  • Your caregivers and aides are empowered. They can complete their visit notes (Alora generates visit notes based on client’s POC), check their schedules, look up client information, and communicate with your agency through secure mail (with text notification).
  • Your nurses are empowered, too – Alora’s EVV gives them quick access to SN Note and OASIS, so their workflow at the patient’s home is easy and straightforward.
  • Having both GPS based EVV and Telephony options available, with Alora, your caregivers can always capture EVV information.
  • Your agency will eliminate the need for paper timesheets and paper visit notes from all caregivers, including aides/PCWs.  With Alora, your agency can achieve a paperless operation.

 

 

THE MAJOR UPSIDE OF HAVING EVV INTEGRATED INTO YOUR SOFTWARE

 

When you manage EVV outside of your home health software – i.e., through a stand-alone system – you have to re-enter data. That takes time and brings mistakes.

 

But Alora software integrates EVV into a complete, easy-to-use software. All of the information for each visit — about the patient, caregiver, agency, schedules, and service provided – is built-in.

 

So, your caregiver doesn’t have to re-enter information … and your agency gets the benefit of accuracy and efficiency.

 

INTEGRATION WITH EVV AGGREGATORS

Alora has built connectivity with many EVV aggregators, including, Sandata, Tellus, HHAeXchange, and Optum, to automatically transmit EVV data.  This connectivity allows agencies to use Alora as their all-in-one solution for EVV and agency management.  Alora automatically transmits all visits completed as planned to the EVV aggregator.  Alora flags visits with discrepancies – such as caregiver forgetting to clock out – for manual review before transmitting to the aggregator.
