    What is Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)?

    • Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is a federal requirement from the 21st Century Cures Act (Section 12006).

    • States must have EVV systems by January 1, 2020, that record:
    1. Type of service performed – Data used in current Electronic Time Keeping process
