Attendance on Demand, Inc. Announces New Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) Reporting Solution for Long-Term Care Facilities
Cloud-based solution helps long-term care facilities collect time and attendance information required for PBJ reporting
(February 2016) — Attendance on Demand, Inc. is pleased to announce a new solution for Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) reporting. Beginning in July 2016, long-term care (LTC) facilities will be required to report staffing and census information quarterly through PBJ to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
"The deadline is quickly approaching and many facilities are still unclear about their PBJ reporting strategy," said Beth Baerman, Director of Communication at Attendance on Demand, Inc. "Attendance on Demand can help remove the burden of PBJ reporting. It also automates status determination for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and ongoing evaluation of variable hour employees – common in healthcare."
In addition to census data, CMS expects detailed accounts of each employee's service, including job title, services performed, and daily number of hours worked. As a registered vendor with CMS, Attendance on Demand automatically collects the required reporting information and meets the PBJ's technical specifications for successful submission. It produces the formatted upload file, which includes:
- Employee ID
- Hire Date
- Termination Date
- Work Type
- Pay Type
- Hours Worked
- Job Title and Labor Category Code
With the reporting deadline looming, LTC facilities need to begin preparing for PBJ reporting. Rather than opting for error-prone manual entry, facilities are wise to choose data upload from a time and attendance system—the most reliable way to generate the daily worked-hours information required.
