The 21st Century Cures Act passed by Congress requires states to implement Electronic Visit Verification(EVV) for Medicaid-financed Personal Care Services by January 1, 2019 and Home Health Care Services by January 1, 2023. EVV is a technology (like an online time-sheet) that gathers time, attendance, and other care plan details, and is to be entered by a home care worker at the point of care. The Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH) created the following EVV Readiness Survey to gather details on your basic knowledge and readiness for the EVV implementation. Replies to the survey questions will be kept private, as the details gathered will only be used to help DCH choose an EVV system. Replies will also help DCH develop training materials for Medicaid members and service providers.
The survey should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete and closes on Monday, April 30th, 2018 at 5pm EST. Please use the following link to access the survey:https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/W98XCFH
