About Us

DMA Health Strategies (DMA) provides effective, data driven strategies to support health systems change and quality improvement. Our work includes strategic planning, change management and quality improvement with public and private behavioral health organizations across the country. We are committed to improving our nationís mental health and substance use disorder services by providing the best possible consulting services to its healthcare leaders.

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 abuse, 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, and state and local funds for the delivery of health care to people with disabilities, special needs children, children in foster care, and individuals with mental illness and/or addictions. 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.
