To the delight of many customers, we announced early this year that SimpleConnect™ would be enhanced to allow customers manage their PBJ file submissions to CMS and retrieve all related PBJ reports. In addition to MDS batch transmission, SimpleConnect now provides an easy, affordable way to simplify PBJ file workflow and reporting.
More than 2,600 facilities already use SimpleConnect™ for managing MDS submissions to CMS. So adding PBJ file submission and reporting was a natural extension of its capabilities. Customers tell us they like the new PBJ functionality, and many have already used SimpleConnect to successfully submit hundreds of PBJ reports to CMS.
With the Nov. 14 deadline fast approaching, we’ve received several questions from providers about how our PBJ submission functionality works, so we put together a brief video to walk you through the process. Just watch the video above to see how easy it is to submit and track PBJ files, plus manage all your CMS PBJ reports.
What’s the Nov. 14 deadline? PBJ reports for your facility must cover the previous quarter just completed. To be recognized as timely, provider submissions of staffing and resident census data must be received by CMS by the 45th calendar day following the last day of the fiscal quarter. That makes the deadline Nov. 14 for the quarter ending Sept. 30.
For a quick introduction to the PBJ workflow, please watch the video above.
