The Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) delivers training on the state’s electronic visit verification (EVV) system, Sandata, through self-paced training.
For providers planning to use an alternate EVV system, self-paced training on the Aggregator — which all IHCP EVV systems must feed data into — is also available.
Note: For training on EVV systems other than Sandata, providers must make arrangements with the vendor for their chosen system.
EVV Training Approach
It is required that at least one employee from each agency complete training to be able to use the state-sponsored EVV system, Sandata Portal. After completing the training, that employee may train other staff members within the agency on how to use the EVV system.
The trained individual, who owns the email associated with Sandata taken from the provider enrollment profile, is the administrator of the Sandata Portal for the IHCP enrolled location. Each IHCP enrolled location has a separate agency ID for the Sandata Portal. Training is required only once.
Providers will not receive their Sandata EVV Portal Welcome Kits until a representative from their agency (service location) completes the self-paced training provided by Sandata. The training can be accessed at IN FSSA Sandata EVV Training. The Certificate of Completion and the IHCP Provider ID for the provider location must be emailed to email@example.com to receive the Welcome Kit.
EVV Train-the-Trainer Self-Paced Training
Providers that plan to use the state-sponsored Sandata solution are required to complete the self-paced training.
To get started with the self-paced training, follow these instructions: IN FSSA Sandata EVV Training.
After the training is completed, the trained staff member must email a copy of the Certificate of Completion to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailbox along with the IHCP Provider ID for each enrolled location.
Sandata is using a new Sandata Mobile Connect application (version 2.0). All caregivers are encouraged to download version 2.0 to take advantage of the improved user experience and to access the most current updates to the application.
Instructions on how to download and use the Sandata Mobile Connect version 2.0 can be found in the Caregiver How To Documents from Sandata On Demand.
