Top 10 Reasons to Partner with DMS

1. We are the nation’s leader in mobile swallowing (dysphagia) diagnostics, with a business presence in 35 states.

2. Our unique and innovative Dysphagia Systems Test (DST) is performed by clinically privileged Speech-Language Pathologists.

3. The DST is the only diagnostic technique that evaluates all five systems required for safe swallowing: Respiratory, Muscular, Gastrointestinal, Neurological and Cognitive.

4. Patients are evaluated in an average of 3.5 days, and within 36 hours for those patients at high risk of returning to the hospital.

5. Adding a Dysphagia Systems Test (DST) to your services enhances your ability to help your patients reduce repeat pneumonias.

6. 78% of all returns to the hospital within 30 days of admission to a SNF are caused by five diagnoses – four of which are related to dysphagia. Dysphagia management in your facility can reduce repeat hospitalizations by as much as 62%!

7. The DMS patient care minutes are additive to the patient’s PPS, and CPT codes can be billed through the facility’s Part B Therapy.

8. DMS provides a Superbill to the facility for immediate billing to insurance carriers. No third-party billing for this SLP service!

9. DMS makes it easy, managing all the details with a toll-free referral line.

10. Dysphagia diagnosis and management makes good clinical AND business sense.
