Tellus Signs on as Exclusive EVV Vendor for Sprint to Prepare for 21st Century Cures Act
By: Tellus, LLC
21st Century Cures Act Defined:
The 21st Century Cures Act was passed into law December 2016 to address a number of issues, including the mandate for EVV (Electronic Visit Verification)
The multi-level goals for this agreement provide digital platforms that meet the 21st Century Cures Act standards for in-person and mobile service home health care providers. The array of offerings incorporates phones and tablets with data plans, EMM (enterprise mobility management), EVV, scheduling modules, administrative and dashboard analytics, and claims processing and adjudication modules, with an initial launch of more than 50,000 devices in the next twenty-four months.
"Our new relationship with Sprint will expand our local and national efforts exponentially,"
The Tellus team will work in conjunction with the Sprint Group Purchasing Organizations program (GPO) to process and benefit vendor and member negotiation workflow to achieve best customer value. The Sprint GPO group includes: Premier Inc., Intalere, Innovatix, Essensa, Greater New York Hospital Association and Care Purchasing Services. The combined effort of the two companies will accommodate the latest technologies and analytics for tracking and reporting while reducing costs by adding efficiency and usability.
Working together, Sprint and Tellus will focus on helping states comply with the 21st Century Cures Act expanding on technologies users are already familiar with. These will tie sophisticated backend processes, transitioning historically cumbersome manual practices to a streamlined system of automation.
