About Us...

As Vice President of Decision Support, Dustin Thomas oversees two key areas: Forecasting, Budget, and Analysis and Decision Support.

The department of Decision Support Analysis (DSA) includes patient cost accounting and Service Line Reporting in support of strategic planning, as well as the support of a number of clinical related data requests.

The department of Forecasting Budget and Analysis (FBA) coordinates the development of the annual operating budget and also serves as liaison to the UTMB Institution to develop and facilitate development of the UT-System Operational Budget, the UTMB Institutional Budget and the Biennial Legislative Appropriations Requests (LAR). The FBA department communicates with entity leadership and financial leaders regarding forecasting, budget variance explanations, budget concerns/issues, and assists in providing information for a number of initiatives and surveys.


Our goal is to ensure the highest quality service and best customer experience, at the most efficient cost.
In support of UTMB and the organization’s Mission and Vision, Institutional Decision Support seeks to sustain a department culture in which employees are both valued and inspired. The team strives to create an environment which fosters integrity, compassion for others, a spirit of excellent customer service and professionalism, while maintaining work life balance and life-long learning. The department seeks to support UTMB initiatives by providing timely, accurate and meaningful financial/clinical information and analysis in order to drive effective decision making throughout the Institution.
