How do Caregivers Use
In order to use facial recognition, the consumer must have a photo uploaded into DCI. Trying to use facial recognition when the consumer does not have a photo uploaded will result in a denied punch.
When clocking in and out you will see a new "Picture" option.
Make sure you take a clear headshot photo of the consumer. See the examples above.
Why Bother Using This New Feature?
Facial recognition is considered the most secure method for clocking in and out within self-directed programs. According to the U.S. Office of Inspector General, over 1,000 people each year are removed from Medicaid due to fraudulent claims. Sometimes, criminal convictions can be tied to these fraudulent claims.
Protect yourself against wrongful fraud claims by proving you are following the rules. The best way to confirm care is taking place is through clocking in and out with facial recognition.
