The Joint Commission has followed up its announcement regarding deletion of Measures of Success (MOS) for certain Elements of Performance (EP) with a complete list of affected EPs, which include about 20 Environment of Care EPs.

On April 28, the Joint Commission announced that the Measure of Success requirements for multiple EPs had been deleted, and made those changes effective immediately. The organization released a reference list via its Web site this week.

As a reminder, while compliance with the EPs is still required, MOS data no longer needs to be submitted.
