Re-Engineered Discharge (RED) Toolkit – Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality – March 2013

Prepared by: Boston University for AHRQ – Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

“A variety of forces are pushing hospitals to improve their discharge processes to reduce readmissions. Researchers at the Boston University Medical Center (BUMC) developed and tested the Re-Engineered Discharge (RED). Research showed that the RED was effective at reducing readmissions and posthospital emergency department (ED) visits. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality contracted with BUMC to develop this toolkit to assist hospitals, particularly those that serve diverse populations, to replicate the RED.”
