CR Mobile / Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Steps for Enabling Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)

To be Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) compliant and properly capture providers’ locations when providing services, the following steps need to be completed in CentralReach and CR Mobile:

  1. Service code properties must have the “Visit Verification” checkbox selected. To enable this property:
    • When editing a service code, select the Visit Verification checkbox under the “Validation” section.
      • When visit verification is enabled, “Enforce Single Timesheet Conversion” and “Requires Schedule Conversion” are automatically enabled and cannot be edited.
      • The “Provider Signature” and “Client Signature” drop-downs will be set to “Required”.
        • Please note, this is an EVV requirement and it is not recommended to change these fields.
      • The service address, provider signature, and client signature are now required fields.
    • Please note, if an appointment has a service code with Visit Verification enabled, then service lines cannot be added or deleted. EVV service codes cannot be added to existing timesheets.
  2. Addresses in existing appointments must be geocoded.
  3. After downloading CR Mobile, users must have the appropriate CR Mobile permissions.
  4. Location services on mobile devices should be “on”.
    • If location services are off, providers’ locations will not be captured.
  5. If users have Electronic Visit Verification enabled, they will receive a warning message, if:
    • They are outside of the service location when starting and ending an appointment.
    • There is no GPS signal or it is turned off.
    • Please note, the warning message will not prevent providers from continuing, but will capture their current longitude and latitude.
