Project RED Reduces Hospital Readmissions for Patients with Depressive Symptoms

BOSTON - Results from a new study at Boston Medical Center show how transition support and post-discharge depression treatment reduce unplanned hospital readmissions for individuals with depressive symptoms. Published in Annals of Family Medicine, researchers discovered a 70 and 48 percent reduction in hospital re-admittance at the 30- and 90-day mark following post-discharge care by an adapted version of the Re-Engineered Discharge (RED) Program, a nationally disseminated readmission reduction program, amongst adherents to the program. The adapted version is named RED for Depression (RED-D).
