Project BOOST sites: each unique with some common themes
by Danielle Scheurer, MD, MSCR, SFHM, physician editor, The Hospitalist
A panel of diverse hospital systems shared successes and challenges with SHM's Project BOOST program, which aims to reduce readmissions for older adults. Although each initiative is (purposefully) tailored to the site, each share common themes, including the use of multidisciplinary teams, discharge process redesign, the use of teach back, and the use of follow up phone calls.
