Training Resources

 

EVV Technologies

The Department has subcontracted with Sandata Technologies for the State EVV Solution. The State Solution utilizes three EVV technologies: mobile application (MVV), telephony (TVV), and a provider web portal.

Mobile Application Verification (MVV)

  • A GPS enabled mobile application downloaded on a smartphone or tablet from the Google Play store (Android) or App store (iOS)
  • Collects location when a caregiver clocks-in/clocks-out (No continual location reporting)
  • Caregivers log in with unique Sandata ID or email address
  • Available in English, Spanish, Somali, Russian, Chinese Mandarin, and Arabic Egyptian
  • The Department does not provide technology to utilize MVV
  • State EVV Solution application will work in rural areas or telephony can be used
  • MVV will automatically switch to Disconnected Mode when smartphone or tablet is not connected to a network
  • EVV data will be saved for a later transmission when the caregiver logs-in and network connectivity (cellular or wi-fi) is established
     

Telephony Visit Verification (TVV)

  • Each provider ID has two toll-free, multi-language numbers that will be provided by Sandata upon receiving credentials
  • Both numbers are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Non-GPS option
  • Client phone is preferred for TVV, but not required
  • Member identified by Sandata Client ID
  • Caregivers identified by Sandata ID
     

Provider Portal

  • Used to view visits and perform visit maintenance (addressing exceptions and errors), manual entries, and administrative tasks.

 

Provider Choice System

If you have chosen to use a Provider Choice System, this section will provide information and tools for your implementation. By selecting a Provider Choice System, you will contract with a vendor of your choice. If you would prefer to use the State EVV Solution, you can visit the State EVV Solution section above.

Here is a list of vendors who have interfaced with Sandata in Colorado or other states. Interface time may be reduced by choosing a vendor from this list. If you select a vendor from the list that is bolded and asterisked, this means they have already connected to Sandata in Colorado before and precludes you from interface testing. This means you can request production credentials for the data aggregator and don’t need to setup or perform interface testing. The Department does not endorse any vendor or recommend using a vendor from this list.
