Sidney Park Health System is experiencing a shortage of coders. Over the past five years, there has been a 30% vacancy rate for coders throughout the main hospital and satellite clinics within the healthcare system. The backlog and vacant positions has created an issue related to unbilled revenue, overworked coders and extended work hours and schedules. It is estimated that there is an annual loss of $12 million. It has also been communicated that many of the qualified coders that were offered a position declined because they are interested in working from home. To address the problem, the health information management department is proposing that there be an implementation of a home-based coding system. This concept is feasible, given that Sidney Park Health System utilizes an electronic health record and all patient information is available electronically. You have been assigned as the project manager to oversee the feasibility and implementation of this project.
For this assignment, you are to develop a project proposal. The proposal is the document used to present the project to organizational leaders, executive management and other stakeholders. In addition to the charter, the proposal should include:
- Title page
- Table of Contents
- Cover letter
- Statement of Need
- Project Charter
Your proposal should be 5 pages, professionally presented, well written and free of typos and errors. Use APA for formatting and citing sources.
