Payroll Based

The Center for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) uses a system to submit staffing data - Payroll Based Journal. Required under Section 6106 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) medical facilities must electronically submit direct care staffing information (including agency and contract staff) based on payroll and other auditable data.
