EVV Forum & Vendor Fair Schedule is Out!
Register today and start planning for our EVV & Consumer Direction Forum & Vendor Fair next week! Registration is FREE for CDPAANYS members and only $35 for the general public, which includes breakfast and lunch.
In addition to the Vendor Fair, this event features product demonstrations of EVV solutions, panel discussions, and opportunities to network with New York consumers and fiscal intermediaries.
In our first panel discussion in the morning, David Birnbaum of Sandata Technologies and Susan McCormack of Long Island Center for Independent Living will start the day off addressing the elephant in the room: how can EVV work in a self-directed environment where consumers and their personal assistants create their own schedules and move freely throughout the community? This panel will offer perspective from both an EVV vendor and a fiscal intermediary.
Jane Lawrence, Senior Consultant at Applied Self-Direction, will speak to attendees in the middle of the day about the 21st Century Cures Act requirement for Electronic Visit Verification – which has generated a lot of discussion and many questions. New York’s Fiscal intermediaries are faced with additional challenges in selecting an EVV solution due to the unique nature of CDPA. This session will review key factors to consider in vendor selection, as well as useful questions that can be used in the information gathering process.
We will also hear from consumers on what steps must be taken to ensure EVV in New York State allows for continued consumer direction and cross-disability accessibility. CDPAANYS’ Consumer Advocacy Workgroup will release its report on consumer recommendations and requirements for EVV implementation in New York State – critical input that will assist New York in meeting the CMS requirements for stakeholder input.
All this information and more will be released through the EVV Event App, which will be available to registered attendees from the beginning of next week.
