Defining The Project

The key project objectives are outlined and you've defined your role  as a project manager. Next, you'll need to further the project  definition in preparation for the project charter. Consider the initial  scenario for Sidney Park Health System, in addition to the following  information:  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.
