In the ever-evolving landscape of healthcare, the demand for seamless transitions of care remains paramount. To illuminate this critical aspect of patient care, Project RED Solutions recently hosted the first in a three-part series of webinars, "A New Standard of Practice in Discharge & Transitions of Care," featuring the esteemed Dr. Brian Jack, founder of Project RED and Professor of Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine.
The Problem: Disconnected Transitions of Care
Transitions of care are problematic in healthcare delivery systems in the United States and globally especially for patients traveling internationally for services. Communication breakdowns, medication errors, lack of care coordination, poor patient understanding, lack of HIT interoperability, and post-discharge planning and support at the point of discharge/care transition - these all contribute to poor outcomes and wasted resources. Well-established research has demonstrated how to reduce these preventable errors.
The standards of care embedded in Project RED have been proven to:
Improve patient outcomes
Raise patient/family engagement
Increase staff satisfaction
Save nurse time, and millions of dollars
Impressive Impact of Project RED
Under the visionary guidance of Dr. Brian Jack and his dedicated research team, Project RED was developed as a revolutionary discharge process. Their pioneering work has substantially reduced hospital readmissions while concurrently enhancing patient outcomes.
