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), under the direction of David Faith, 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.
In support of UTMB and the organizations Mission and Vision, we seek to sustain a department culture in which employees are both valued and inspired in an environment which fosters integrity, compassion for others, a spirit of excellence, and professionalism and includes work life balance and life-long learning. In doing so, the department seeks to add organizational value by providing key stakeholders with high levels of service and timely, accurate, clear and complete financial information upon which decisions may be based.
