Alora offers Missouri agencies a compliant, integrated solution for electronic visit verification. Alora’s EVV system for Missouri automatically captures and integrates all electronic visit verification data from your visits, streamlining it directly into the main Alora Home Health Software. The end result? Faster billing, higher efficiency, and compliance with AHCCCS EVV requirements.
As a certified EVV Vendor for Missouri Medicaid. Alora automatically transmits EVV information to the 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.
Alora ensures compliance with Missouri’s EVV requirements, with a built-in solution accessible within your main Alora Home Health Software. When everything is in one place, running your agency becomes easier.
ALORA EVV Benefits include:
Home health care service providers are not required to be fully EVV compliant until 2023.
Initially, all home health and personal care providers were instructed to be able to demonstrate EVV implementation compliance as outlined in the Cures Act by January 1, 2020. Missouri then applied for and was approved for a Good Faith Effort Exemption for Electronic Visit Verification (EVV). As a result, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) did not apply reductions in federal medical percentage during 2020; however, if personal care service providers in Missouri were not fully compliant by January 1, 2021, the risk of reductions has taken effect. Home health care service providers are not required to be fully EVV compliant until 2023.
The State of Missouri in June of 2021 selected Sandata to be its Electronic Aggregator Solution for Electronic Visit Verification (EVV), however, all providers are free to use an alternate EVV System for Missouri so long as the system meets the aggregator specification requirements.
Features that make administrators and caregivers excel…
Telephony – Reduce costs, automate processes, and maximize your time with Alora’s Homecare Telephony solution. Telephony grants agency administrators the advantage of knowing the details of all of their home visits, as they are happening in the field. Our Telephony Solution captures the start and end time of each visit, and features a detailed Plan of Care report which indicates whether each task was successfully performed during the visit. Administrators are notified for delayed visits, late arrivals, as well as no shows, granting the agency admins a powerful tool that reduces fraud and automates all of the processes that once wasted an agency’s time and payroll. Alora Telephony fully integrates with our web-based Home Health Software, automatically marking as “Complete” visits that have been successfully finished as ready for billing and payroll. Telephony can be a valuable backup/addition to Alora EVV and Alora AideConnect for agencies looking to remain in total control of visit management.

Complete clinical documentation. That includes assessment, evaluation, plan of care, and visit notes for the six disciplines covered by Medicare (skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, home health aide services, and medical social worker) and more. Alora home health software offers plan of care document that incorporates the requirements of the new Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoP) changes. In addition, Alora offers the traditional CMS-485 Certification and Plan of Care document.
Assessments (OASIS and Non-OASIS). Alora Software helps agencies stay compliant with CMS requirements. 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 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 finger or mouse. Captured signatures are embedded in the clinical documents. Alora home health care software can capture the GPS location with timestamp while the patient signs as the proof of visit.
Other capabilities. Alora home health software offers many other features to help clinicians and agencies to stay compliant and thrive in-home health care. 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.
