OnShift’s Software and Resources Available to LeadingAge Members to Meet New Reporting Requirements

July 5, 2016, CLEVELAND — OnShift, a leader in human capital management software for post-acute care and senior living, and LeadingAge, an association of nonprofit aging services providers, today announced a partnership to help LeadingAge members meet the Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) reporting government mandate. As part of the agreement, OnShift is offering its Payroll-Based Journal Reporting software through an exclusive special discount program to LeadingAge members.

“LeadingAge members voiced their concerns to us about managing the complex PBJ process, and we listened. We found a cost-effective, efficient solution: OnShift Payroll-Based Journal Reporting software,” said Katie Smith Sloan, president and CEO of LeadingAge. “We are excited to work with OnShift to offer this product to our members so they can continue to deliver quality care to the millions of older adults they serve every day.”

“Many providers are struggling with the new PBJ reporting requirements, lacking the processes, resources, and systems necessary to accurately report their staffing information,” stated Mark Woodka, CEO of OnShift. “We are thrilled to partner with LeadingAge to offer their members our easy-to-use software and educational resources, so they can overcome PBJ reporting complexities and successfully submit their staffing data to CMS.”

OnShift Payroll-Based Journal Reporting software helps skilled nursing providers meet CMS’ staffing reporting requirements in three easy steps. OnShift’s PBJ software collects staffing information, including agency and contractor hours; provides a centralized view into staffing information so it can be easily reviewed and edited prior to submission; and delivers a submission-ready report that can be easily uploaded to CMS’ Payroll-Based Journal system.

About Payroll-Based Journal Reporting In accordance with Section 6106 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) all skilled nursing facilities are required to collect and electronically submit direct care staffing information electronically starting July 1, 2016. To facilitate the reporting process, CMS has developed the Payroll-Based Journal system.
