Every dollar lost to fraud, waste, or abuse is a life impacted negatively.

Kristy Pyles, Principal at In Your Corner Consulting, LLC, joined Hannah Patterson on this episode of Netsmart CareThreads to talk about implementing electronic visit verification (EVV).

Kristy designed and implemented an EVV solution which was the first in the United States to achieve CMS certification using the Outcome Based Approach. This design can help providers, states and EVV vendors avoid bumps in the road and have a positive impact on the people they serve.

What we discussed with Kristy:

  • The challenges related to implementation of EVV
  • Tips and best practices for a successful EVV launch
