Our mission is to improve our nation's mental health and substance use disorder services by providing the best possible consulting services to its healthcare leaders.
What We Do
DMA Health Strategies conducts policy research, develops strategy and facilitates continuous improvement in healthcare organizations to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of services, implement evidence based programs and expand the use of consumer centered approaches. We accomplish this through system reviews, management and policy research, procurements, group facilitation, and the development of effective marketing communications and proposals.
Since 1987 DMA has provided services that combine our experience in management, organizational behavior, research methods, public policy, and systems analysis. We have assisted public and private agencies that offer mental health, substance use, medical, child welfare, and intellectual disability services. Much of our work has involved the design, procurement and implementation of managed behavioral healthcare and blended funding initiatives for states and counties. These projects have involved Medicaid, Title IV, Block Grants, and state and local funds for the delivery of health care to vulnerable populations. We are national leaders in the implementation of self-directed care and our work also includes quality improvement collaboratives and performance measurement in publicly funded healthcare systems.
Each public agency has a unique set of organizational, political, regulatory, legal, and financial requirements. We pride ourselves on developing a customized solution for every client. We are particularly effective at balancing the needs of multiple constituencies to create workable and politically viable solutions.
