What is Project BOOST®?

The Project BOOST® Mentored Implementation Program is a national initiative led by the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) to improve the care of patients as they transition from hospital to home.

The Project BOOST® Mentored Implementation Program is a yearlong initiative wherein hospitals receive expert mentoring and peer support to aid in improving the care of patients as they transition from hospital to home. BOOST mentors help hospital teams to map current processes and create and implement action plans for organizational change. BOOST provides a suite of evidence-based clinical interventions that can be easily adapted and integrated into each unique hospital environment.
