Project RED: Module 1: Preparing to Redesign Your Discharge Program

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

Project RED Oversight Committee - Steering

  • Vision.
  • Mandate improvement.
  • Identify champions.
  • Receive and review updates.


Your PI oversight committee will set the vision for the re-engineered discharge process and set the expectation for improvement (e.g., 50 percent reduction in readmission rates). The committee will determine who the project champion will be and will review project updates through a systematic process. It may become apparent that the senior leaders need to communicate project updates to the hospital board of directors or need to create a standing project update within departmental management meetings. The PI oversight committee will make these decisions.
