DMSS Provides Consulting Services For Health and Human Services Organizations
Since 2003 DMSS has developed hundreds of systems of care in the areas of child welfare and human services. We develop systems and processes that are used by local and state governments. We also develop systems for human services organizations that serve contracts with state and local governments. The DMSS child welfare management system is a basic framework for implementing policy and procedures, delivering services and reporting for Health and Human Services Agencies. DMSS has developed 212 components that make up about 20 modules that interact in four basic logical groups to manage almost all types of child welfare agencies. This aggregate of patterns allows us to generate detailed reporting and forecasts related to your staff, services and clients. DMSS utilizes MIMI (the master information management interchange) an AI based logical computer software system to analyze all the available data sources like case management, referrals, foster care placements, contracted items and so on to generate reports and analysis of the status of your system of care. The reports and forecasts that MIMI produces can be use by the management of the organization to determine what and where, if any, operational changes are needed. All client information is confidential and is destroyed upon completion of the analysis. All clients remain confidential at all times.
A short description of the DMSS consulting services
We were able to summarize the greatest successes we had while assisting child welfare and human services agencies in the previous six years and we were able to simplify our consulting methodology and develop two primary products:
Departmental Consulting Departmental Consulting is related to operations and process analysis. Taking advantage of our Departmental Consulting, your top-tier management can get independent analysis of the way any process is performed, the efficiency of the staff, the related costs and the client outcomes. For example, are you under bidding your services? Are incident reports more likely to increase as it relates to particular staff member? What is the burn rate of any specific contract or service? Departmental Consulting breaks down all the service and cost elements and assigns a quality value that your management team can use to make appropriate changes.
Development Consulting - Development Consulting is the strategic view of the choices that management is making at any given point in time. Some examples of the items that Development Consulting looks at: Should a service be expanded, should the organization target a particular funding source?, should the organization address? one client type over another? what are the community trends? Development Consulting is usually
implemented after the data from the Departmental Analysis has been completed and the reports are generated. Development Consulting draws from all the finalized reports to generate business forecasts. Developmental Consulting also assists in grant writing and proposal submission for new and/or expansion of services.
Departmental Consulting accounts for the core consulting services needed by management that need clear and concise information related to their operations. Departmental Consulting also assists in reorganizations and downsizing

Why use DMSS?
Here are just a few reasons:
Time Savings - We can automatically generate a system from our
inventory of software in minutes. Once you basic system has been configured and
is online, we discuss with you specifics and we customize your data fields and
reports. You can have a full data system serving your agency or business unit in
a fraction of the time it takes to actually develop one. We keep working with
your agency on an ongoing basis to keep developing and customizing your system
as your agency's needs change.
Security - DMSS uses the highest levels of data encryption while transferring and storing your data, that means that only
you will have access to your files. We also backup all your data and can also provide you with data extracts
if you need them.
Tremendous Cost Savings - Some large scale human services
computer systems can range in cost from hundreds of thousands to millions of
dollars to implement. Many agencies do no have the time or that level of funding
or have small IT departments or none at all. The cost alone to maintain the
hardware and keep the system and reports up to date can be the cost difference
from being able to keep a service or program open to the public or having to
close it. Our cost structure is deeply discounted for health and human services
agencies. Some of our products are free or have a minimum licensing charge and others fall under
our charity pricing structure.
Setup - Our systems are configured online for your agency so you
have nothing to do other than update your agency's information and use the
system. There are also offline and local versions available which you can
install in your network or intranet.
Support - Support is provided online via telepresence and email
at no cost. Phone and on site support can be purchased.
Training - Training is provided online at no cost for every
agency and is ongoing. On site training can be purchased.
IT Services - If you do not have IT staff or your IT department is small, we can maintain services like your web site and your email and integrate it with your data management solutions reducing your overall IT management and support costs.
Confidentiality - Absolutely all information is kept confidential. We have a strict no spam policy.
