If your Facility provides Direct Care Patient Hours for Medicare or Medicaid services, you are familiar with the Payroll Based Journal Reporting Requirements.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) provides a 5 Star rating system so that consumers can compare nursing homes in the categories of: Nursing Staffing, Annual Inspection Results, and Quality Measures. As CMS believes that Quality of Patient Care is directly related to a facility’s Staffing Levels, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Section 6106, now requires skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) to electronically submit direct staffing information based on payroll and other comprehensive data.
- Integrated Direct-Care Hours Captured for every shift:
To streamline the reporting process for Patient Direct-Care Hours, Schedule360-PBJ offers an integrated module that captures scheduled employee hours, by shift, for easy download an entry into the quarterly Payroll Based Journal report. Every shift is captured by employee and department, and automatically defaults Direct Care Hours less Non-Productive Lunch Breaks.
- Automated Capture for Floated Shifts – No Manual Input of Hour Changes
When an employee shift is floated to a different department, the hours associated with this shift automatically splits correctly and is captured on each unit worked for accurate reporting.
- Accurate Capture of Hours Less Non-Productive Lunch Breaks – Easy Adjustment as needed:
All shifts include standard lunch or breaks factored into Direct Care Hours reporting. Gone are the days of having to manually subtract non-productive hours for Payroll Based Journal Reporting. Should a shift need to be adjusted, the process involves a simple click of the mouse to capture revised hours with a drop-down selection for accurate capture of where the non-productive time is reported.
- Night Shift (NOC) Shift reporting with Split Direct-Care Hours:
Night Shift Direct-Care Hours are automatically split to report part of the shift on the previous day and the remaining hours after Midnight. Non-Productive Lunch Breaks default to after Midnight, but can easily be adjusted as needed with a click of the mouse.

PBJ Direct-Care Hours data are available 24×7 and can be downloaded immediately to the Admin Users email address. Data is stored and available indefinitely and Reports can be run for any time period: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, and Annually.
