Practice tip of the week: 6 Benefits of using an electronic visit verification app 


Your weekly dose of wisdom from the Physicians Practice experts.

With all the useful information available on Physicians Practice, it is easy to become overwhelmed.

With this in mind, the tip of the week is a chance to reflect on some of the wisdom found all across the site. In a December 2021 article on 6 Benefits of using an electronic visit verification app,Khalid Al-Maskari writes the following:

"EVV is an electronic process that verifies care provider visits for personal or home health services. These electronic records track the types of services performed, date and time of visit, the location of the service and information about the service provider. EVV allows health care workers and caregivers to utilize mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets and allows on-the-go access to the most up-to-date patient records, equaling overall better-quality care for patients. the following six benefits of using EVV:

  1. Reduced Documentation Errors - Without EVV or access to mobile health records, caretakers often take notes, fill out forms and record information later.
  2. Easier Scheduling - Homecare appointments are often moved at the last minute. Utilizing a mobile app allows a caretaker to view the most up-to-date appointment information at any given time and set reminders about upcoming appointments.
  3. More Accurate Provider Check-in and Check-out Times - The EVV mobile app automatically time stamps a caretaker’s check-in and checkout times and verifies if the caretaker arrived at the scheduled appointment time."
