Missouri started using a form of EVV in 2016, but it does not meet all the requirements in the 21st Century Cures Act. So to comply with the law, Missouri has chosen to implement the open vendor model, allowing providers to choose their own systems and aggregating the data from these systems. The EVV systems must meet the requirements to interface with the aggregator.
Missouri is still in the planning stages of this solution. The state has not chosen an aggregator system yet.
