AMGtime Updates Skilled Nursing Facility Module

 

Did you know last year Government Jerry Brown increased California’s Hours Per Patient Day (HPPD) ratio from 3.2 to 3.5?

Skilled Nursing Facilities throughout the country are required to submit Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Many Nursing Facilities also need to track and report on Hours Per Patient Day. The state of California has updated their law requiring Skilled Nursing facilities to increase their base HPPD ratio to 3.5 from 3.2. In addition, 2.4 of those hours must be completed by Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA). State governments are increasingly requiring minimum HPPD ratios, with many states already implementing their own laws regarding this subject.

This is a great improvement to patient care but lengthens the process of calculating hours. To eliminate manual calculations, AMGtime provides the perfect solution for Skilled Nursing Facilities to automate the calculation of census and HPPD ratios to meet staffing requirements. The updated module also has the option of calculating CNA ratios. The Skilled Nursing Facility module includes several reports and an XML export with PBJ specifications.

AMGtime Announces Workforce Scheduling

AMGtime Workforce Scheduling
As an employer, you probably have many things on your plate that require a lot of time and attention – managing your space, employees, customer relations and profit. Employee scheduling really shouldn’t be one of them. Setting schedules should be straightforward and quick! At least, that’s what AMGtime believes… which is why AMGtime created the Workforce Scheduling solution to assist you.

Workforce Scheduling will cut labor costs by reducing time spent vetting employees and manually configuring schedules. The right number of employees, with the required set of skills, qualifications, trainings and certifications per shift, will be scheduled for your work week! Also, employees can set their availabilities and preferences pending employer approval. If allowed by the employer/manager, employees can drop, swap or even pick-up new shifts with an equally qualified coworker. The administrator will have visibility into these changes and requests through the customizable dashboard. With all this set,Workforce Scheduling can auto-scheduleby determining the ‘Best Candidate’ option to fill shifts.Schedule smarter, not harder.

As we’re always looking to improve, we’ve made some recent updates as well! You can now view the daily scheduler in a simplified format. This is ideal for quick adjustments that need to be made. You’ll even have the option to directly extend/detract shifts and stagger lunches within this view per employee. You can also easily print schedules per employee with breaks included. It is really that simple!

Affordable Care Act Update

UPDATE: On March 24th, the American Health Care Act was pulled by Republicans. House Committee Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen announced that the health care bill is unacceptable and that some changes “raised serious coverage and cost issues.” Many Republicans were on the fence about the legislation of AHCA since they like policies in the ACA better. This means that the Affordable Care Act is here to stay for now unless a stronger and better legislation comes along in the future. With the same policies and rules, compliance with the ACA should be met by employers and employees.

The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare provides millions of people with health coverage and it holds insurance companies accountable. However, the ACA has been on the rocks since the change of administration, with plans to replace the ACA.

In regards to the recent proposals to appeal the ACA, many Americans are concerned with the future of their healthcare coverage. Obamacare has provided options for low-income families and employees, that would typically not be able to access healthcare coverage. Although ACA can be beneficial, it is also a disadvantage for people who are required to pay for it but do not utilize it. Obamacare penalizes people who do not pay for insurance which means they are required to have health insurance, but if this legislation is repealed then individuals can choose to acquire a health plan or not.

Employers will appreciate some aspects of the new legislation, American Health Care Act (AHCA), such as the elimination of penalties for employers not offering insurance to full-time employees. The AHCA maintains certain ACA coverage, but with varying criteria needed to be met. Some of these include eliminating exclusions for pre-existing conditions, covering adult dependent children 26 and under, limiting out-of-pocket expenses, and more.

As of right now, the new administration and Republicans in the House and Senate are cooperating to modify or repeal the ACA, but everything is still up in the air. In the meantime, the Affordable Care Act still applies to everyone. At AMGtime, we know how important it is to track and be complying of the ACA, therefore we have created the ACA Compliance module that calculates hours needed to meet the requirements for compliant health insurance. This module keeps companies on track so they will not be charged for not offering health coverage or not meeting the minimum value.
