Software acquisition simplifies PBJ compliance for skilled nursing providers and expands Briggs’ post-acute digital offerings
WEST DES MOINES, IOWA, Aug. 1, 2018 – Today Briggs Healthcare announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire ezPBJ. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Briggs, ezPBJ will continue to expand its software solutions for Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) reporting and compliance for the skilled nursing market.
Based in Rochester, New York, ezPBJ creates software to simplify and automate PBJ reporting to CMS. Hundreds of skilled nursing facilities use ezPBJ to assemble, validate and submit quarterly PBJ reports, as well as benchmark Five-Star staffing ratings and prepare for audits. The company was the first to provide a comprehensive PBJ solution for skilled nursing facilities in response to new 2016 regulations.
Briggs Healthcare continues to enhance its software offerings for post-acute care. In 2016, Briggs acquired SimpleLTC, a leading provider of workflow automation and predictive analytics software. Under Briggs’ leadership, ezPBJ and SimpleLTC will coordinate strategic and development efforts to further grow their product lines into new and more diverse healthcare markets.
“Briggs Healthcare is unsurpassed as a clinical and regulatory compliance leader in the post-acute market,” said Dustin Epstein, Briggs Healthcare Chief Digital Officer. “With the addition of ezPBJ to the Briggs family, we’re excited to further grow our digital platform to help post-acute care organizations simplify their processes and unlock the tremendous hidden value within their data.”
“Skilled nursing facilities across the country use ezPBJ to validate and streamline their PBJ reporting,” said Don Feige, ezPBJ CEO. “Now with the backing of Briggs Healthcare and the upcoming integration with SimpleLTC’s MDS analytics, we can provide the most predictive and complete software solution for the changing PBJ regulatory landscape.”
