PBJ platform debuts
Prime Care Technologies has launched a Payroll-Based Journal Reporting platform, the company said.
Providers have to start uploading staffing and census data to a PBJ system each quarter beginning in the third quarter of 2016.
“By adopting a platform now, they can assure all systems are in place and run test submissions to assure they're in good shape prior to the deadline,” said Jim Hoey, president of Prime Care Technologies.
The solution lets providers integrate cross-facility data from employee and census systems and account for contractor hours. Users can look at a summary of employee and contractor hours, automate the mapping of labor codes to CMS codes and export one all-inclusive file per facility for quarterly upload to CMS, the company said.
