Don't Allow PBJ to Make a Mess of Your 5-Star Rating-On-Demand

Format:  Recorded Audio Conference

Date Recorded: May 9, 2018

Program Summary: The way that nursing homes are assigned star ratings in the staffing domain is changing.  As soon as this month, the basis for staffing-related star ratings will change from information collected at the time of periodic survey to data reported quarterly through the Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) system as well as the MDS.  The stakes have increased and PBJ data audits have begun.  Join us to learn how CMS is using PBJ data to determine your 5-star staffing rating, hear about common issues being raised in PBJ audits, and understand what you should be doing to help protect your quality ratings.  Participants will learn:

  • How the new 5-star staffing rating is calculated using PBJ data
  • What actions will trigger a one-star staffing rating
  • Key areas of focus for PBJ auditors 
  • Why MDS assessment accuracy is now important for your 5-star staffing rating

Target Audience: Administrators, CFOs, HR Directors and staff, Quality Assurance Coordinators, Compliance Officers, DONs and MDS Coordinators.

Speaker: Don Feige, CEO, ezPBJ, Rochester
