Project RED

The Project RED (Re-Engineered Discharge) intervention is a patient-centered, standardized approach to discharge planning and discharge education, initially developed through research funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

AHRQ funded JCR to assist hospitals implement the Project RED intervention, aimed at improving the patient's preparedness for self-care and at reducing the likelihood of readmission.


JCR’s work involved the implementation and dissemination of Project RED—providing technical assistance to 269 participating U.S. hospital organizations who deployed the RED interventions (Re-Engineered Discharge—a Boston University Medical Center evidence based method for discharging patients) assessing their own discharge performance, identifying barriers and process breakdowns, and implementing the components of RED in designated patient populations (often CHF), collecting data, and using a performance improvement methodology to implement change and to spread this change.
