Colonial Manor Has Confidence in New ACA-Required Reports
Colonial Manor, a skilled nursing and assisted living facility in Columbus Junction, Iowa, has been a TMS customer for more than a decade. In January 2016, the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) mandated that all Long-Term Care (LTC) facilities must submit quarterly Payroll-Based Journals (PBJ) reports beginning in July. PBJ reports must be specified in a midnight-to-midnight calendar day format regardless of skilled nursing care shifts. This creates problems for LTC facilities which are 24-hour operations with shifts that cross over midnight to the next day.
Colonial Manor proactively looked for and found a solution in the new PBJ feature of their existing time tracking software, TMS Attendance Enterprise. The PBJ feature automatically formats the necessary data in the correct midnight-to-midnight format without changing the way Colonial Manor tracks employee time or calculates its payroll.
