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 )
