• Electronic Submission of Staffing Data through the Payroll-Based Journal (BPJ) will soon be mandatory:

    Monday December 14, 2015

    CMS has allowed nursing homes to voluntarily submit staffing and census data through the PBJ system since October 1, 2015.  As of July 1, 2016, collecting this staffing and census data will be mandatory for all nursing homes.  Section 6106 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires facilities to electronically submit direct care staffing information (including agency and contract staff) based on payroll and other auditable data.  The data, when combined with census information , can be used to not only report on the level of staff in each nursing home, but also to report on employee turnover and tenure, which can impact the quality of care delivered.  (Resource: www.CMS.gov )
