The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to begin collecting direct care staffing information from all nursing facilities, including agency staff and contract staff, in a uniform format. The ACA mandates the data include the following:
Category of work performed, e.g., RN, LPN, CNA or therapist
Resident case mix
Staff turnover & tenure information
Hours of care provided per resident per day
To comply with the ACA requirements, CMS has developed the Payroll Based Journal (PBJ) reporting requirement. Join us for a 30 minute webinar to help demystify the requirements and prepare for the July 1, 2016 deadline.
