3 Reasons to Use EVV When You Clock In
Electronic visit verification, or EVV, is becoming more and more critical in the healthcare space. Most importantly, the 21st Century Cures Act mandates compliance, and each state has its own deadline to reach as close to 100% adoption as possible.
As an employee, this requirement might feel like it benefits your employers more than it benefits you directly. But in reality, EVV offers several perks for the employee experience. Let’s take a closer look at three reasons to use EVV to clock in and out of your shifts.
- Address discrepancies right away so your paycheck isn’t delayed.
In the home care industry, there are a number of alerts that can flag your shift for further review. For example, if you clock in while you’re outside of the patient’s GPS radius, your shift will need a review—even if you were just barely outside the range.
With physical timesheets, by the time your employer is looking over your records to process your paycheck, it’s often too late to address any discrepancies in a timely manner. The time it takes to look into a situation can be the difference between receiving your paycheck on time or not. With EVV, if anything is flagged on your account, your HR team will see the potential problem right away, with plenty of time to find a solution before payday.
- Remove the potential for lost or damaged documents.
With physical timekeeping records, there’s a risk of you accidentally damaging or losing your documents. If you can’t find your timesheets before you need to submit them, your employer has no record of the time you worked—and no reason to move forward with your paycheck until you find them. The same goes for documents that are ripped, spilled on, or otherwise damaged. Accidents happen, but EVV removes the risk of this situation entirely!
- Access your shift wages as soon as you clock out with Keeper.
We saved the best for last! When you use EVV, you have the option to use Keeper to make any day payday via our app (download it on the App Store or Google Play Store). If you find that you need additional funds between paychecks, Keeper can use your EVV records to provide early access to the wages you’ve already earned from any shifts in the current pay period. We can’t offer the same opportunity with paper timesheets, but the instantaneous nature of EVV means we can offer the funds from your latest shift as soon as you clock out. If you’ve been waiting for a reason to switch to EVV, this is it!
Ultimately, EVV is a layer of added protection for both you and your employer. Both sides are better protected by a digital system that’s accurate, timely, and secure.
But, just in case that’s not quite enough incentive for you, Keeper is an exciting perk that’s only offered to EVV users. Get started today!
