How will PBJ impact Five-Star staffing?
How will PBJ impact Five-Star staffing? Would you like one lump or two?
We don’t know when, and we don’t know how, but when Payroll-Based Journal staffing data replaces the data currently being captured from CMS Form 671 for calculating Five-Star staffing, we are likely going to take several lumps.
Skilled nursing providers have been submitting PBJ data since mandated as of July 2016 and today 92% are compliant with this requirement. Compliance in this case means PBJ staffing data was successfully transmitted to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and on Nursing Home Compare a staffing domain star rating is present.
