About Project RED Solutions
Built on the success of Project RED (Re Engineered Discharge) as an effective method for improving healthcare transitions of care, decreasing unnecessary or inappropriate hospital readmissions, and improving patient satisfaction, Project RED Solutions offers training and consulting services for healthcare and social care organizations throughout the United States and internationally.
Why Project RED Solutions?
Healthcare systems throughout the world are challenged to improve efficiency and effectiveness.With healthcare costs increasing, and demands on healthcare systems soaring, the need to improve systems and staff efficiencies have never been greater. This is recognized when patients move from one healthcare setting to another, and / or to their homes. Called - “transitions of care” - it is at these critical transitions where poor clinical outcomes occur. Sometimes patients and their families / caregivers do not understand instructions, and therefore the recommended treatments are not completed. Or perhaps the patients and their families / caregivers do not know what to watch for. This results in less than optimal recovery, which too often further results in hospital readmissions.
This is where Project RED Solutions makes a difference and adds value.
What is Project RED?
Project RED (Re Engineered Discharge) was created by healthcare professionals and communications scientists to measurably improve patient compliance with inpatient discharge instructions.
Project RED was supported by grants from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH)-National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHBLI), the Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation, and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), and Agency for Health Research and Quality (AHRQ)
Project RED improves patients’ and families understanding of what to do when they are discharged, and this measurably improve clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction in transitions of care, reducing unnecessary hospital readmissions. The success and value of Project RED explains why the program is among the most highly cited and accessed content in the medical literature.
The medical scientists behind Project RED have joined forces with global healthcare experts to bring this solution into hospitals and healthcare systems throughout the world.
This is the Project RED Solutions.
