01/05/2016 CMS Payroll Based Journal

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS) announces the Payroll Based Journal Staffing Data Collection System (PBJ) for Nursing Homes.

CMS has long identified staffing as one of the vital components of a nursing home's ability to provide quality care. Over time, CMS has utilized staffing data for a myriad of purposes in an effort to more accurately and effectively gauge its impact on quality of care in nursing homes.

CMS intends to collect staffing and census data through the PBJ system on a voluntary basis beginning on October 1, 2015, and on a mandatory basis beginning on July 1, 2016.

Section 6106 of the Affordable Care Act requires facilities to electronically submit direct care staffing information (including agency and contract staff) based on payroll and other auditable data. The data, when combined with census information, can then be used to not only report on the level of staff in each nursing home, but also to report on employee turnover and tenure, which can impact the quality of care delivered.

This system will allow staffing information to be collected on a regular and more frequent basis than currently collected. We are working with our client facilities to provide them with the information required from us so they can submit it with all the other information that the new PBJ system mandates.

10/30/2015 Food Drive 2015

Therapy Resources Management and Rehab-At-Home teamed up this year with the Fall River offices of Departments of Industrial Accidents & Developmental Services (DIA) and assisted with a food drive to benefit the food pantry of Citizens for Citizens here in Fall River. The agency services over 600 families each month. Sometimes the food pantry has to close due to the overwhelming demand from local area residents in need.

We joined their great efforts and collected over 130 food items which will be delivered to families in need just before Thanksgiving.

If you would like to offer any assistance and/or have any questions please feel free to contact Paul Przystarz, Regional Manager at DIA, at 508-677-3318.

Warmly Yours,
TRM Staff
