Dale Jarvis and Associates was a consulting firm in Seattle, Washington that specialized in development and implementation of health and human services payment models and service delivery designs to support the American healthcare system’s transition from a model that pays for volume to one that pays for value.

Dale Jarvis, the firm’s founder, had over twenty years’ experience helping health plans, health and human services providers, and state and local governments redesign their systems and organizations to achieve better health for the populations they serve, with better care for individuals, and overall reduced costs. He contributed articles to several publications and was a co-author of two books on healthcare system redesign.  Mr. Jarvis has been a certified public accountant in the State of Washington since 1982. 

NOTE THAT IN JANUARY 2019, DALE RETIRED AND CLOSED THE FIRM. HE IS KEEPING THIS WEBSITE OPEN IN ORDER TO CONTINUE SHARING THE LARGE QUANTITY OF FREE MATERIAL THAT CAN BE FOUND ON THE RESOURCES TAB.

Dale Jarvis and Associates’ focus was on helping ensure that the needs of at-risk and vulnerable Americans are addressed as the health and human services systems are transformed, with a particular emphasis on persons with mental health and substance use disorders. This included working with states, health plans, regional authorities, and at a national level to develop strategies that align safety net systems with general healthcare system transformation and reform efforts.

  • Design and development of safety net accountable care organizations
  • Configuration of new healthcare payment models and performance measurement systems for safety net populations
  • Organization of regional health authorities to coordinate the payors of health, behavioral health, housing and social services
