Re-Engineered Discharge (RED) Toolkit

Resource Location:

The hospital discharge is a complex process requiring integrated communications among the inpatient care team, primary care team, community services, the patient, and the patient’s caregivers. The RED Toolkit has been expanded to provide complete implementation guidance and adapted to address language barriers, cross-cultural issues, and disparities in health care communication and trust. The toolkit now includes five additional tools that provide step-by-step instructions as a springboard for hospitals to proactively address avoidable readmissions.
