As the January 1, 2021 deadline* approaches for States to implement the requirements set forth in the 21st Century Cures Act, it is apparent that there are programs in all stages of development. From the initial information gathering stage to complete program deployment, States are in varying levels of “completion.”
Many States who currently have active Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) programs are finding that some changes need to be made to their current programs in order to be fully compliant with the requirements. Thus, they are going through the process of reprocurement for EVV services. So what implications does this process have for the industry?
Financial expense (associated with alternative systems)
New device deployments
Reprocurement is inevitable for many in the industry; however, the aforementioned hurdles are lessened when LINK is part of the deployment process.
We intentionally built LINK as an open-model EVV mobile device, so Providers and Payers can seamlessly transition between EVV software vendors as necessary. LINK does not compete in the EVV industry, but rather partners with EVV vendors, States, Providers and MCOs to help facilitate a successful EVV implementation. Thus, LINK’s open model aids in the collaboration between all payers, providers and vendors so the industry can get paid faster. Lastly, LINK guarantees consistency of EVV devices deployed in a program.
Regardless of where you are in the EVV implementation process, we’re available to chat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
