How to Cover Your Bases With PBJ: Are You In Compliance?

PBJ reporting app Madison

Today’s article is for owners and operators of long-term care facilities subject to Payroll Based Journal reporting. Since PBJ submission became mandatory in July of 2016, how has it been going for you? Have you created a realistic process? Are you meeting the quarterly deadlines? Are you certain that your data is reliable?

PBJ Doesn’t Need to be a Full-Time Job
There are two ways to transmit PBJ reports: manual data entry and data upload from a payroll or time and attendance system. If you have tried going the manual route, you know what a hassle it is, and it will only get more time-consuming, tedious, and error-prone as your company grows.

PBJ Your Way
Workforce Management Suite from Berndt CPA takes the headache out of PBJ compliance with a system that is quick, easy, and cost-effective. The PBJ tools in Workforce Management Suite aren’t an afterthought; they were designed to meet the challenges of real-world SNF staffing structures right from the get-go.

Do you employ a team of direct employees, contract, and agency staff members? No problem.
Do you have staff that splits their time between patient care and administrative responsibilities? We’ve got it covered.
Do you have associates that work more than one job code? No sweat.
Do you have physicians who provide both direct patient care and medical director responsibilities? Easy peasy.
Does your labor force work at multiple facilities? You are going to have to do better than that to stump us.
Do you have both SNF/NF and non-certified beds? We can handle that in our sleep.
