Project RED: Re-Engineered Discharge (Staff Training)

Provides a four-module training program to help hospitals implement Project RED.

Communication and Coordination

  • Hospital discharge process is often characterized by poor communication and a lack of coordination between the hospital and the PCP
  • Patients often do not know what medications their physicians prescribed, when follow-up appointments should take place, and, in some cases, why they were hospitalized


"Establishing a strong physician referral base is a key component of Project RED."
