Oregon Provider Time Capture

​Stakeholder Engagement Sessions for AAA/APD Staff, Consumers and Providers are approaching at the end of October! Check out our PTC Stakeholder Engagement Fall 2020 Announcements below and join us to receive project updates and provide feedback!

The Project has a new anticipated timeline!

Phase 1 of PTC is now projected to go live in SUMMER 2021 to allow for a more thoughtful implementation!

The Provider Time Capture (PTC) project will implement a shared time capture solution for the in-home care providers of the Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS) Aging and People with Disabilities (APD) program and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) Health Systems Division (HSD).

The first phase of the PTC project 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 Consumers. 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 third and final phase will bring in additional OHA programs and phase in data aggregation.
