Alora offers California agencies a Medi-CAL approved built-in solution for electronic visit verification. Alora’s EVV system for California automatically captures and integrates all electronic visit verification data from agency visits, streamlining it directly with the Sandata aggregator, resulting in faster billing, greater efficiency, and compliance with CDSS EVV protocol.
When homecare agencies can save time by relieving the burden of managing EVV and daily homecare agency operational workflow in two separate systems, the time and cost savings improve overall operational efficiency. Alora’s Medi-Cal ready electronic visit verification brings automation and compliance to agencies seeking to simplify EVV protocol adherence.
EVV Benefits include:
Electronic visit verification (EVV) in California requires the use of an electronic-based system that collects information through a secure website, a mobile application, or a telephone line. Federal law in concert with the parameters of the 21st Century Cures Act required all states to implement EVV for Medicaid-funded personal care services by January 2020 and home health care services by January 2023. Individual states can select and implement their own EVV system, provided the EVV system verifies:
The implementation deadline for California EVV Phase I was January 01, 2021
The implementation deadline for California EVV Phase II is January 01, 2022
As an Open-model state, California’s deadlines for EVV Phases I & II were the first of January of 2021, followed by January 01, 2022. California has selected Sandata as the EVV aggregator for Phase II. Originally for Phase I the California Medicaid program mandated that all provider agencies use their selected vendor’s state EVV system. Home Health Care & Personal Care agencies operating in California will be able to select their vendor of choice within Phase II, so long as that provider is able to successfully aggregate with the Sandata system.

Alora offers comprehensive OASIS assessment to help thoroughly assess patients while staying compliant with Medicare guidelines. Assessment includes Medicare M00 questions, comprehensive assessment questions as well as many tools including Braden Scale, Fall Risk Assessment, Nutritional Assessment, Pain Assessment, and much more.
For non-Medicare/non-Medicaid home health services, agencies may opt to perform the Non-OASIS assessments which are comprehensive yet faster to complete.
Alora also provides Non-Skilled Assessments for patients with non-skilled services only.
Plan of Care (POC). Alora offers the traditional CMS-485 as well as an enhanced “living” plan of care helping agencies to stay compliant with the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoP) requirements. Generate Plan of Care automatically from the assessment or create independently.
Alora’s POC is a dynamic document that can track the progress made and goals met during the course of the certification period. At any time, agencies can view or print the plan of care as signed by the physician as well as the POC in its most current status, incorporating all the additional orders that came in since the cert period started. Alora also generates a Patient Readable Plan of Care.
Visit notes based on Plan of Care. Did your caregivers actually do what was required in the patient’s plan of care? You won’t have to wonder – Alora home health software generates patient-specific visit notes that are derived from the POC.
Medication profile and administration, with interaction alert. Your clinicians enter and maintain information on patient medications – and the software automatically checks for drug-to-drug interactions and drug-allergy reactions (powered by Medi-Span). Alora also generates logs on medication administration and materials to educate patients.
Offline documentation. “No Internet” is no problem — clinicians complete documentation offline when the Internet is not available, then transmit their documentation with a single click when they have access to the Internet later. Alora provides native offline applications for iPhone, iPad as well as Android phones and tablets.
Comprehensive OASIS documentation with built-in analyzer. Your clinicians’ assessment of patients is improved by a powerful analyzing tool that spots inconsistencies and other problems in OASIS forms. The result: Maximized reimbursement and better patient care.
Electronic signature capture. Patients and caregivers can electronically sign documentation using their fingers or a mouse. Captured signatures are embedded in the clinical documents. Alora home health care software can capture the GPS location with timestamp while patient signs as the proof of visit.

Some of the additional features include Braden Scale, patient-specific Emergency Preparedness Plan, shift visit notes, supervisory visits notes, missed visit notes, supply log, transfer summaries, discharge summaries, patient vitals history dashboard, physician portal, and much more.
