The Joint Commission's (TJC) field review of MS.01.01.01 (formerly MS.1.20) closes this Thursday, January 28.
While the standard may involve some bylaws revision work by some hospitals, NAMSS believes that the draft standard preserves the authority of the medical executive committee better than the 2007 revision of the standard and is also more flexible than the previous revision.
Modern Physician featured an article yesterday which includes some views of those who, along with NAMSS, participated on the task force that created this revision of MS.01.01.01.
TJC plans to have its Board of Commissioners vote on the standard at their March meeting.
