“Pretty darn amazing!” – SimplePBJ™ simplifies PBJ for Alpha Care

Ken BellSkilled Nursing

Alpha Care Properties is a group of well-established long-term care facilities in Oklahoma. With 200 employees staffing three facilities, Alpha Care Properties provides a wide range of services and is one of the most highly-rated networks in the state.

The challenge

Alpha Care initially attempted to manually enter PBJ data into the CMS system. After a month and dozens of hours of effort, Alpha Care researched and compared multiple PBJ solutions. The combination of ease of use, comprehensive features and cost of SimplePBJ™ provided the answer Alpha Care needed.

SimplePBJ™ results

Alpha Care was thrilled with their results and has expanded the use of SimplePBJ™ throughout their network. Their results with SimplePBJ™ were “pretty darn amazing!” according to Linda Brannon, Alpha Care’s General Manager.

Outcomes include:

  • Streamlined operation: Saved many hours on monthly PBJ reporting process
  • Data integration: Comprehensive payroll data integration, including Time Force time-keeping data and contractor data
  • Low cost of submission: SimplePBJ™ was the lowest cost option Alpha Care researched

SimplePBJ™ helped Alpha Care Properties comply with CMS’ PBJ requirements well in advance of the submission deadline without major disruption to their regular administrative reporting.
