The Provider Time Capture (PTC) project will implement a shared time capture solution for the in-home care providers of the Department of Human Services (DHS) Aging and People with Disabilities (APD) program and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) Health Systems Division (HSD).
The first phase of the PTC project (scheduled to be finished by the end of 2020) will implement an electronic time capture solution that will meet federal mandates (see
FAQ section on Electronic Visit Verification). The following data elements will be required to be captured electronically by Homecare Workers (HCWs) and Personal Support Workers (PSWs) at the time of service:
1. Type of service
2. Individual getting the service
3. Provider giving the service
4. Date of the service
5. Location of the service
6. Time the service starts and end
The second phase will have a direct impact on the business processes of State and Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) staff, and not on Providers and Individuals. It will implement connections between current state systems and the PTC solution. This will carry data over between the two systems, making for less manual work. The second phase is currently scheduled to release by the end of 2021.
The third and final phase will bring in additional OHA programs and phase in data aggregation. Phase 3 does not currently have a scheduled release.
