“Due to instillation of a new encoding system, the coding department has a serious back log of charts needing to be coded. The CFO is requesting a strategic plan identifying how the back log will be caught up and stay up-to-date. There is a current back-log of 3,500 uncoded charts. There is an average of 350 discharges per day. You currently have 25 coders on staff with an average productivity of 24 charts a day. You have been authorized to bring on up to 10 consultants to help with the back-log of coding.
Create a GANTT chart, PERT chart, or timeline starting at the current state until all charts are up-to-date.

Create a professional memo to the CFO which provides just the highlights of the strategic plan.
