Our Mission

It is the Mission of Dysphagia Management Systems, LLC (DMS) to provide mobile swallowing evaluation and instrumentation services at the patient’s bedside, including the use of the fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) according to the standards set forth by the American Speech, Language and Hearing Association. As Speech Pathologists that are experts in dysphagia management, it is our mission to utilize our evidence-based evaluation approach to establish medical necessity, document functional risk, and make recommendations consistent with the patient’s evolution through the continuum of patient care. With this highly specialized Dysphagia Systems Test (DST) protocol, the collaborative goal is to positively affect a reduction in repeat patient hospitalizations, cost of care, and potential to return to a higher level of health status, and lower level of required care.
