According to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) under Section 6106, it is necessary for all nursing homes to submit the staffing, agency, and contract staff information through an electronic filing system. This requirement has led Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to develop a new system called the Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) to assist the facilities in filing the necessary reports.
How Will CMS Use the Data?
CMS will use the data collected through the system to evaluate employee tenure, turnover, and the number of staff in each nursing home of the country.
PBJ will enable CMS to collect census and staffing information on a regular and routine basis. In addition to this, all collected data will be audit to increase accuracy. CMS will gather and release the information to the public, giving them the opportunity to choose a nursing home best suited for their needs.
