Is a written scope of services document still required?
That requirement still exists, but it has been much less emphasized for many years. This used to be a big part of the day one process. The TJC reference is LD.01.03.01, EP 3 and the CMS reference is A-0584. We don’t see a lot of focus on this planning document at this time. Such a planning document may be helpful for internal purposes, leadership prioritization of resources, board orientation, etc.
