DSE Associates is a healthcare consulting firm, focused on development and enhancement of health system based case management services. With our clients we design practical, measurable, compliant and financially sustainable case management services that contribute to the financial health of the hospitals and the communities they serve.
Our goal is to assist healthcare organizations in achieving quality patient care outcomes, regulatory compliance and insurance guidelines and positive results through the development of effective case management models, customized to partner with all stakeholders bridging relationships with purpose.
Our consultants are nursing, social work and physicians with a depth of case management and healthcare experience. Whether developing the case management model or addressing specific problems associated with case management operations (e.g. patient access, coding, recovery audits, transition of care, patient-centered medical homes) we assist in creating practical, measurable, and sustainable solutions that deliver the clinical and financial outcomes desired by our clients.
We create synergy between case management and the healthcare team to assure collaboration, leading to positive outcomes based on defined goals.
