Project RED: Re-Engineered Discharge (Staff Training)

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

Primary Care Physician Referral Base

  • Leaders identify the PCP referral base
  • Hospital assesses PCP satisfaction before project launch
  • Physician champion communicates with PCPs about project
  • PCPs advise how to handle off-shift and weekend patient needs


"Leaders help identify their hospital's primary care physician referral base so that the hospital can help find a primary care physician for the patient who doesn't have one."

Note: Indicate what your plan is for patients in your project who do not have primary care physicians.
