Project Re-Engineered Discharge is a research group that develops and tests strategies to improve the hospital discharge process in a way that promotes patient safety and reduces re-hospitalization rates. The RED (re-engineered discharge) intervention is founded on 12 discrete, mutually reinforcing components and has been proven to reduce rehospitalizations and yields high rates of patient satisfaction. Project RED has started to implement the re-engineered discharge at other hospitals serving diverse patient populations. We are also looking at the transitional needs, from inpatient to outpatient care, of specific populations (i.e., those with depressive symptoms). Additionally we have a patient-centered project to create a tool that hospitals can use to discover factors (i.e., medical legal, social, behavioral, etc.) in patients’ readmissions.
