Alora has made EVV easy for Idaho agencies. Thousands of home health caregivers enjoy the ease of Alora EVV and love to use it every day – because it makes their work-life easier! The benefit for the agency is not only compliance with DHW, but also better operational efficiency than ever before!
With Alora, you can live-monitor home visits, with color-coded alerts for delays and no-shows. This capability gives a real-time view of what is happening with home visits, by the minute, so that you can react to delays and no-shows before it is too late. With Alora, agencies are in full control of what goes on with home visits.
Idaho Medicaid has announced that they will deny claims for services provided without EVV compliance. Is your agency going to be at risk for claim denials? You need a robust system that integrates EVV into claims generation to eliminate the risk of claim denials. With Alora, you can rest easy.
Alora is a Certified Alternate EVV Vendor for Idaho Medicaid. Alora automatically transmits EVV information to Sandata aggregator for visits completed as planned. For visits that need manual review, such as caregiver forgetting to clock out, Alora queues the visits for manual review and approval before transmitting to Sandata.
Because EVV is integrated with Alora Home Health Software, the EVV data captured automatically flows into the Alora system. As soon as your caregiver leaves the patient’s home, the visit scheduled in the Alora system gets updated with the start and end time and is marked as completed. Instantly, the visit becomes ready for billing and payroll. Any visit that did not occur as planned is flagged for manual review.
Alora is a Idaho Department of Medicaid certified EVV system for agencies operating within the state of Idaho. Packed with features that provide administrators and caregivers everything they need in one place, Alora’s complete cloud-based home health care software for Idaho system features built-in electronic visit verification for Idaho home care agencies.
Because the Alora EVV solution is integrated as part of our all-in-one agency management system, the level of automation you can achieve with Alora home health software for Idaho can elevate your agency workflow to much greater efficiency. Compare this to an agency with a standalone EVV system that does not integrate with their agency workflow. They have to commit several manual hours daily to copy all the EVV data from the standalone system, in order to be able to bill accurately and make the payroll. This slow, labor-intensive, process not only costs money but also is prone to errors that will put their Medicaid reimbursement at risk.
Would you like to automate and thrive or keep working harder to remain where you are? Alora can help your agency thrive.

Idaho is operating under a “Provider Choice EVV model”, meaning that agency providers can use an EVV system of their choosing, so long as it meets the minimum requirements identified by Idaho Medicaid and is compatible with the state’s EVV aggregator offered by Sandata. Once a provider has selected their electronic visit verification vendor, they can work directly with Sandata to report their chosen vendor and begin testing beginning in February 2021.
EVV is defined as an electronic-based system that verifies when and where provider visits occur, as well as collect the relevant data and documents verifying the precise time services begin and end. This process ensures that members receive authorized services. To meet federal compliance guidelines set forth by the 21st Century Cures Act, all EVV systems must collect:
1. The type of service performed
2. The name of the individual receiving the service
3. The exact date of the service
4. The exact location of service delivery
5. The name of the individual providing the service
6. The exact time the service begins and ends
Section 12006 of the 21st Century Cures Act mandated that all U.S states must implement an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system for all Personal Care Services (PCS) and home health care services requiring in-home visits by a provider. Initially, all states were required to provide EVV for PCS providers by January 1, 2020, and for home health by January 1, 2023. Like many other states, Idaho filed a Good Faith Effort (GFE) extension with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and was granted an extension, allowing that EVV for PCS must be implemented by January 1, 2021. Subsequently, in the spring of 2021, impacted Personal Care Service and Home Health providers will be required to begin testing with an EVV vendor and integrating with the state’s aggregator (Sandata).
ALORA MAKES EVV EASY
Alora makes work life easier for your caregivers. The benefit of having EVV fully integrated within Alora’s agency management system is that Alora already knows everything about the visit when your caregiver arrives at the patient’s home. Therefore, your caregiver can simply press “Start Visit” upon arrival and proceed with the patient care.
Compare this to a standalone EVV system that does not have any prior knowledge of the visit. It doesn’t know the client’s Medicaid ID, the agency, the caregiver, or the service being provided. Your caregiver has to enter all of this upon arrival. This entry takes time and often leads to mistakes. Mistakes are costly because they frustrate your caregivers, delay the care for the patient, and uncorrected mistakes can affect the reimbursements for your agency.
Alora’s ID EVV was designed to not only fulfill DHW requirements but additionally, its feature capabilities anticipate and simplify the aspects of your visit workflow that may have previously cost your agency time and productivity.
