New York Medicaid EVV Software

Alora has made EVV easy for agencies providing homecare and personal care in the state of New York. 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 benefits for the agency are not only compliance with the New York Department of Health (DOH) requirements but also a greater level of operational efficiency than previously experienced.

 

 

WHY ALORA’S EVV SYSTEM FOR NEW YORK?

LIVE-MONITORING

Alora offers live-monitoring of home visits, alerting your agency for delayed visits and no-shows. This capability gives a real-time view of what is happening with home visits, by the minute.  It helps your agency stay compliant while avoiding lost revenue due to missed visits.  With Alora, New York Home health care provider agencies are in full control of what goes on with home visits.

 

AVOID CLAIM DENIALS

New York 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 (electronic visit verification) into claims generation to eliminate the risk of claim denials. With Alora, you can rest easy.

BILLING AND PAYROLL – FASTER AND ACCURATE

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.

 

AUTOMATE AND THRIVE

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 can elevate your agency workflow to much greater efficiency. Compare this to an agency with a standalone New York 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.

ALORA MAKES EVV EASY

Alora makes work life easier for your caregivers. The benefit of having a New York EVV software system 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. As a result, 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.

 

CARE PLAN BASED VISIT NOTES FOR YOUR AIDES AND CLINICIANS

Did your caregiver actually complete all the tasks required in the patient’s plan of care? Alora removes the questions and gives you certainty – our software generates patient-specific visit notes that are derived from the POC.  Your aides and clinicians can perform their documentation right from the Alora EVV interface – making their workflow simple.

TELEPHONY

No Internet connectivity at the patient’s home? No problem. Alora provides a homecare telephony solution as a back up to the GPS based NY EVV software. When your caregiver is at the patient’s home and does not have Internet connectivity, she can simply use the telephony solution to capture EVV.

New York EVV Requirements

NY EVV Start Dates:

  • Medicaid-funded personal care services (PCS) – January 1, 2021
  • Medicaid-funded Home Health Care Services (HHCS) – January 1, 2023

 

New York operates under the “Choice Model” to fulfill the mandated EVV requirements set forth by the 21st Century Cures Act. This means that NYSDOH requires that providers of Medicaid-funded personal care services (PCS) select, and implement an EVV system that meets each of the requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act effective January 1, 2021. Providers of Medicaid-funded Home Health Care Services (HHCS) will be required to select and implement an EVV system by January 1, 2023. In addition, providers will be required to submit EVV data to NYSDOH, which will be aggregated for reporting and audit purposes.

Any approved EVV system for New York must collect the following data points:

  • The precise date of the visit
  • The time when the visit starts and ends
  • The type of services the patient received during the visit
  • The name of the caregiver who provided the services during
    the visit
  • The name of the person/patient receiving the services
  • The exact location of the visit

 

New York Medcaid EVV & the 21st Century Cures Act

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, and the choice model in which New York is operating under, a compliant EVV system must be able to collect and transmit either individually or through an aggregator:

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
