August 2019 Archives

Colorado EVV program for in-home Medicaid services is ready to go

A 2016 federal law, the 21st Century Cures Act, mandates that each state as part of its administration of Medicaid-funded services create an electronic visit verification system, known as EVV. EVV check-ins will prove that in-home Medicaid services by health care providers really happened.

In a June 2019 report, the Office of Inspector General, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, announced the findings of its investigation into nursing home failure to report potential abuse and neglect when the law requires mandatory reporting.

Technology can help people with autism understand emotions

Readers may remember Google Glass, the wearable technology product that uses an eyeglasses model to display information before the wearer’s eyes and that operates using voice commands. While Google stopped selling the product because of privacy concerns involving the device’s camera, it is still the focus of research into adaptations that could benefit people with autism and other disabilities, according to a recent San Francisco Chronicle article.
