Alora has made EVV easy for Ohio agencies. Thousands of home health caregivers in Ohio 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 ODM, but also better operational efficiency than ever before!
Alora’s built-in EVV system covers all mandated payers in Ohio, including the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM), Ohio Department of Aging (ODA), Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD), Aetna, Buckeye, CareSource, Molina, Paramount, and United Healthcare.
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 with ODM EVV System requirements while avoiding lost revenue due to missed visits. With Alora, agencies are in full control of what goes on with home visits.
Ohio Medicaid has announced that they will deny claims that do not match with electronic visit verification (EVV) data. Is your agency going to be at risk for claim denials? You need a robust system that integrates EVV into claims processing to eliminate the risk of claim denials. With Alora, you can rest easy.
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.
The level of automation you can achieve with Alora home health software elevates your agency workflow to much greater efficiency. Compare this to an agency that does not have the Alora solution. They have to commit several manual hours daily to copy all the EVV data from the Sandata portal into their 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 in the era of EVV.

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.
Did your caregiver actually do what was required in the patient’s plan of care? You won’t have to wonder – our software generates patient-specific visit notes that are derived from the POC. Your aides and nurses can perform their documentation right from the Alora EVV interface – making their workflow simple.
Alora empowers aides with a software tool to, not only capture electronic visit verification but also check their schedules, look up client information, complete plan of care based visit note and communicate with the agency through secure mail with text notification. Your aides can access the Alora software from their smartphones or any other mobile devices.
As the first EVV solution to be ODM approved, and successfully re-certified as a fully compliant system for electronic visit verification in the state of Ohio, Alora offers agencies an award winning nurse-friendly home health software. In addition to capturing EVV information, nurses can complete their visit notes and assessments right at the patient’s home while having access to all relevant clinical information in the palm of their hand. The EVV component of Alora provides nurses quick access to skilled nursing visit notes and OASIS assessments ensuring that their workflow at the patient’s home is easy and straightforward.
No Internet connectivity at patient’s home? No problem. Alora provides telephony solution as a back up to the GPS based EVV software. When your caregiver is at patient’s home and does not have Internet connectivity, she can simply use the telephony solution to capture EVV.
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.
Alora is not just an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) solution for OH agencies. It is a powerful home health software for Ohio agencies. Alora is a complete agency management EMR for home health agency in Ohio that covers the clinical, financial and operational aspects of a home health care business.
