The Department of Social Services is proud to announce a unique partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Sandata Technologies, LLC. in the implementation of Electronic Visit Verification (EVV).
EVV is a telephonic and computer-based in-home scheduling, tracking and billing system. Specifically, EVV documents the precise time and type of care provided by care-givers right at the point of care.
EVV streamlines cumbersome document-based billing and scheduling systems for a truly mobile and dynamic system. EVV electronically documents caregiver activities consolidating labor-intensive documentation into a seamless, error-free system. EVV incorporates:
- MVV - a caregiver enabled smartphone app,
- FVV - a small in-home device, and
- Telephony - a telephone based tracking program.
The EVV system is free to you and your caregiver and will NOT change any of the services that you receive.
NOTE: Participation in the EVV implementation is mandatoryfor clients enrolled in the following benefit plans:
- CT Home Care Program (CHC)
- Personal Care Assistant (PCA)
Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
