Businesses today have a greater responsibility when it comes to meeting regulatory compliance; this means they need solutions that not only track time and attendance but also ensures that they comply with local, state, and federal laws.
Regulatory compliance offers a unique opportunity for your business. Because an employer’s need to comply with various laws becomes an opportunity for you to expand into new markets by helping employers protect their business and increase your service revenue.
Section 6106 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires long-term nursing facilities to submit Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) reporting for their direct care staff electronically that includes payroll, timekeeping, and other auditable data.
PBJ reporting is mandatory because it provides the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) a data-driven means to measure the quality of care that long-term nursing facilities provide their patients.
Our Workforce Management Suite—TimeWorksPlus and TimeSimplicity, assists employers greatly in this effort by not only tracking the number of hours their staff provides as caregivers but our solution also tracks employee specific information such as date of hire, term dates, job codes, medical titles, etc. that are required for PBJ reporting. The employee data our new PBJ rule gathers from TimeWorksPlus enables clients to export their direct staff data using our new file format that is auditable and available for review at any time.
