Kronos® Workforce Ready® solution can help nursing home providers meet CMS/Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) electronic staffing data reporting requirements.

In 2010, the Affordable Care Act mandated specific provisions pertaining to the collection of staffing data for long-term care facilities. Nursing homes are required to electronically submit direct care staffing information to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The reporting specifications require detailed information about the work employees perform as well as demographic HR data. This electronic data collection program is called the Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ).
