Changing LTC Regulations Means New Staffing Requirements

The IMPACT Act of 2014 mandated that nursing homes submit electronically staffing data based on payroll and other verifiable and auditable data using a uniform format. In the newly released “Medicare Program; Prospective Payment System and Consolidated Billing for Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) for FY 2016, SNF Value-Based Purchasing Program, SNF Quality Reporting Program, and Staffing Data Collection; Final Rule,” CMS provides information on these new stringent requirements for SNFs, including the use of a Payroll-Based Journal.

The newly proposed overhaul of nursing home regulations may change the way facilities need to look at their staffing by using a competency-based approach.

In this webinar attendees will learn about how these new compliance requirements will impact them and gain an understanding of the information in the newly proposed regulatory overhaul of the nursing home regulations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the newly proposed regulations for staffing that have been proposed in “Medicare and Medicaid Programs: Reform of Requirements for Long-Term Care Facilities”
  • Assess the use of Payroll Based Journal (PBJ) for electronic submission of staffing data in their facilities
  • Identify the impact that standardized and auditable data may have on their facilities in the future
