Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system is purposed for the mitigation of fraudulent billing and financial waste through government overspending in healthcare. This system enables home health agencies to assure that patient visit times, location, and services are documented accurately and in real time through its GPS capability. This system with its interface capability with state’s claim submission and reimbursement system provides transparency and real time verification of patient care, thus, maintaining agency accountability for audit purposes, and eliminating agency risks. Although healthcare billing fraud has created an enormous financial burden for the United States government, this literature review extends beyond erroneous and fraudulent billing to address other drivers of healthcare cost in the United States. Because of the recent use of the Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) System, assessing its effectiveness in averting overspending can be beneficial in predicting its usefulness.
