What does the acronym DSO stand for?
Key Takeaways –
Days sales outstanding (DSO) is the average number of days it takes a company to receive payment for a sale.A high DSO number suggests that a company is experiencing delays in receiving payments, which can result in a cash flow problem.A low DSO indicates that the company is getting its payments quickly. That money can be put back into the business to good effect.Generally speaking, a DSO under 45 days is considered low.

Background : Two ‘sibling disorders’ have been proposed for the 11 th version of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11): Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Complex PTSD (CPTSD). To date, no research has attempted to identify the optimal symptom indicators for the ‘Disturbances in Self-Organization’ (DSO) symptom cluster.
Objective : The aim of the current study was to assess the psychometric performance of scores of 16 potential DSO symptom indicators from the International Trauma Questionnaire (ITQ). Criteria relating to score variability and their ability to discriminate were employed.
Method : Participants ( N = 1839) were a nationally representative household sample of non-institutionalized adults currently residing in the US. Item scores from the ITQ were examined in relation to basic criteria associated with interpretability, variability, homogeneity, and association with functional impairment.
The performance of the DSO symptoms was also assessed using 1- and 2-parameter item response theory (IRT) models. Results : The distribution of responses for all DSO indicators met the criteria associated with interpretability, variability, homogeneity, and association with functional impairment.
- The 1-parameter graded response model was considered the best model and indicated that each set of indictors performed very similarly.
- Conclusions : The ITQ contains 16 DSO symptom indicators and they perform well in measuring their respective symptom cluster.
- There was no evidence that particular indicators were ‘better’ than others, and it was concluded that the indicators are essentially interchangeable.

Planteamiento: Se propusieron dos ‘trastornos hermanos’ para la versión 11 de la Clasificación Internacional de Enfermedades (CIE-11): el Trastorno por Estrés Postraumático (TEPT) y el TEPT Complejo (TEPT-C). Hasta la fecha, ninguna investigación ha intentado identificar los indicadores óptimos de síntomas para el conjunto de síntomas ‘perturbaciones en la autoorganización’ (DSO, por sus siglas en inglés).
Objetivo: El objetivo del presente estudio fue evaluar el desempeño psicométrico de las puntuaciones de 16 posibles síntomas de síntomas de DSO del Cuestionario Internacional de Trauma (ITQ, por sus siglas en inglés). Se emplearon criterios relacionados con la variabilidad de las puntuaciones y su capacidad discriminante.
- Método: Los participantes ( N = 1839) fueron una muestra de hogares representativos a nivel nacional de adultos no institucionalizados que actualmente residen en los Estados Unidos (EE.UU.).
- Se examinaron las puntuaciones de los ítems de la ITQ en relación con los criterios básicos asociados con la interpretabilidad, la variabilidad, la homogeneidad y la asociación con el deterioro funcional.
El rendimiento de los síntomas de DSO también se evaluó utilizando modelos de teoría de respuesta de items (IRT, por sus siglas en inglés) de 1 y 2 parámetros. Resultados: La distribución de respuestas para todos los indicadores DSO cumplió con los criterios asociados con la interpretabilidad, la variabilidad, la homogeneidad y la asociación con el deterioro funcional.
El modelo de respuesta graduada de 1 parámetro fue considerado el mejor modelo e indicó que cada conjunto de indicadores funcionaba de manera muy similar. Conclusiones: El ITQ contiene 16 indicadores de síntomas de DSO y tienen un buen rendimiento en la medición de sus respectivos grupos de síntomas.
No hubo pruebas de que determinados indicadores fueran ‘mejores’ que otros, y se concluyó que los indicadores son esencialmente intercambiables. PALABRAS CLAVE: TEPT de la CIE-11, TEPT-C de la CIE-11, perturbaciones en la autoorganización (DSO), teoría de respuesta al ítem.
- 背景：第11版的《国际疾病分类》（ICD-11）中提出了两个‘兄弟疾病’：创伤后应激障碍（PTSD）和复杂 PTSD（CPTSD）。目前为止没有研究试图识别‘自我组织失调’症状簇的最优症状指标。
- 目标：本研究目的在于使用《国际创伤问卷》（ITQ）评估16个可能的 DSO 症状指标分数的心理测量学表现，并使用相关指标考察其分数变异性和区分能力。
- 方法：1839名被试是目前居住在美国（US）的民间（non-institutionalized）成年人的全国代表性家庭样本。考察ITQ 的项目分和可解释性、变异性、同质性有关的基本标准的关联，以及它与功能损害的关联。DSO 症状的表现使用1各或者2个参数的项目反应理论（IRT）模型进行评估。
- 结果：所有 DSO指标的反应分布都符合和可解释性、变异性、同质性、功能损害有关的标准。1参数反应模型是最佳模型，说明每个指标组都有相似的表现。
- 结论：ITQ 包含的16个 DSO 症状指标都可以很好测量对应的整治促。没有证据说明某个指标‘更优于’其它。可以总结认为这些指标本质上都是可以互换的。
关键词: ICD-11 PTSD，ICD-11 复杂 CPTSD ，自我组织失调(DSO)，项目反应理论 Two ‘sibling disorders’ have been proposed for the 11 th version of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11): Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Complex PTSD (CPTSD) (Maercker et al., ).
PTSD is defined by three clusters each containing two symptoms (see Brewin, Lanius, Novac, Schnyder, & Galea, ; Maercker et al., ): (1) re-experiencing of the trauma in the present (Re), (2) avoidance of traumatic reminders (Av), and (3) a persistent sense of threat that is manifested by increased arousal and hypervigilance (Th).
In contrast, the definition of CPTSD includes the six PTSD symptoms as well as an additional set of symptoms that reflect ‘Disturbances in Self-Organization’ (DSO). These DSO symptoms are defined by three clusters: (1) affective dysregulation (AD), (2) negative self-concept (NSC), and (3) disturbances in relationships (DR).
The DSO symptom clusters are intended to capture the pervasive psychological disturbances that typically arise following exposure to multiple and repeated traumas (e.g. childhood abuse, being a prisoner of war). Selection of symptoms representative of each cluster was guided by findings from research on Disorders of Extreme Stress Not Otherwise Specified (DESNOS), an earlier version of the CPTSD profile, where those selected were symptoms frequently endorsed by patients in the field trials for the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV; American Psychiatric Association, ) (van der Kolk, Roth, Pelcovitz, Sunday, & Spinazzola, ), and identified as among the most frequent and distressing by clinicians in an expert consensus survey (Cloitre et al., ).
ICD-11 guidelines recommend that disorders include a limited but clinically meaning number of symptoms (Reed, ). Consistent with these guidelines, the measurement and psychometric assessment of ICD-11 PTSD has limited each cluster to be represented by two symptoms (Brewin et al., ).
- There is an emerging consensus on the specific symptoms that describe and can be used to assess ICD-11 PTSD (Maercker et al., ).
- However, research to reduce the number of symptoms and identify the optimal symptom indicators for the three DSO symptom clusters is still in a preliminary stage.
- Potential DSO indicators consistent with the ICD-11 characterization of CPTSD have been proposed in the International Trauma Questionnaire (ITQ; Cloitre, Roberts, Bisson, & Brewin, ), a self-report measure specifically designed to capture the ICD-11 diagnoses of PTSD and CPTSD.
Initial construct validation studies of the ITQ have been promising (e.g. Hyland, Shevlin et al., ; Hyland et al., ; Karatzias et al., ). However, to date, the focus of the psychometric research has been on testing the latent structure of CPTSD, but there has been no attempt to assess how the DSO symptoms perform in a diagnostic capacity.
Accordingly, the overarching goal of this study is to present and apply a systematic approach for assessing the performance of the proposed DSO symptom indicators, as measured by the ITQ. It is critical that the decision regarding which DSO items to retain is informed through a process of rigorous empirical investigation with samples characterized by different traumatic exposures, and from different cultural and national backgrounds.
This will help to ensure that the final symptom profile of PTSD and CPTSD will be internationally applicable and highly replicable. Consistent with advances in the formulation of the ICD-11 PTSD assessment, our desire is to identify two well performing items for each DSO cluster.
Additionally, our goal is that the AD cluster be represented using one symptom that reflects emotional hyper-activation, and one symptom that reflects emotional hypo-activation, as these were two important aspects of AD identified in an ICD-11 case-controlled field study (Keeley et al., ). The current study assessed the performance of 16 potential DSO symptoms in three linked analytical phases.
In Phase 1, the scores of the DSO symptoms were examined to determine if they met basic criteria associated with interpretability, variability, homogeneity, and association with functional impairment. In Phase 2, the performance of the DSO symptoms was assessed using 1- and 2-parameter item response theory (IRT) models.
This provided information on how well the indicators measured their respective dimension (discrimination) at levels that would be useful for diagnostic purposes (difficulty). In Phase 3, the diagnostic rates for CPTSD were calculated based on the use of a refined set of DSO symptom indicators. The participants for the current study were a nationally representative household sample of non-institutionalized adults currently residing in the US.
Data for this study were collected in March 2017 as part of a larger project assessing the construct validity of the ICD-11 proposals for PTSD and CPTSD. Data were collected using an existing online research panel that is representative of the entire US population.
Panel members are randomly recruited through probability-based sampling. Inclusion criteria for the current study were that respondents be aged between 18 and 70 years at the time of the survey, and have experienced at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. A total of 3953 participants were screened to meet the inclusion criteria; a total of 1839 people qualified as valid cases for inclusion in the final analyses (eligibility rate = 46.3%).
The survey design oversampled among females and minority populations (African American and Hispanic), each at a 2:1 ratio. To adjust for this oversampling, the data have been weighted to be representative of the entire US adult population. All self-report surveys were completed online (median time of completion = 18 minutes).
Individuals received no payment for participation in the survey but were incentivized to participate through entry into a raffle for prizes. Ethical approval for the study was granted by the ethical review board of the institution to which one of the authors is affiliated. The weighted socio-demographic characteristics of the sample are presented in,

Note: If the POE information is missing from the student record, the DSO should verify student visa status via the student’s travel documents or confirmation of Change of Status by USCIS. Travel information can be verified using the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) public-facing I-94 site. After being granted permission by the student or parent/guardian of a minor, a DSO can go to to search for the most recent data and travel history. If known travel dates are missing, the student can reach out to CBP for additional information.

Ask a DSO” is a series with advice from DSOs on the different situations F and M students may encounter and for which they need to be prepared. Your DSO is an essential resource while you study in the United States. Your DSO must authorize or recommend many of the actions you may take while you are here.
Without this authorization or recommendation, you could risk violation of the terms of your visa, which would result in losing your student status. Your DSO is your primary source for information on federal rules and regulations as well as advice on how to This knowledge will help you navigate your way through many academic and nonimmigrant issues.

Can a permanent resident be a DSO?
Anyone who wants to serve as a designated school official (DSO) must be a regularly employed member of the school’s administration. A DSO must be a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States.
Are DSOs profitable?
Dentistry continues to be one of the most profitable industries in the United States, with the DSO (Dental Service Organization) model rapidly gaining traction year over year. DSOs like Operation Dental are independent business support systems that contract with and purchase dental practices to provide business management services like billing, IT, marketing, human resources, payroll, and accounting.
The dental industry is historically insulated from fluctuations in the market and global crises. Dental investments offer a unique diversification benefit as the industry has been resilient during economic downturns or global crises like the COVID-19 pandemic. Data shows us that “adults’ propensity to seek dental care is only impacted when wealth decreases by greater than 50%. In fact, the data shows the utilization of dental insurance benefits (and thus dental revenues) actually increases substantially during a recession. This increase happens early on as people rush for service in anticipation of coverage disruption.” 1 Private equity is hot on investing in corporate dentistry, and for good reason, As the dental industry continues to consolidate into multi-location and DSO practices, investors recognize the efficiencies of scale and profitability that corporate management can bring to individual practices. We are seeing a gradual but clear evolution into a merger and acquisition climate, with solo, dentist-owned locations shifting to the DSO model. Dentists and investors alike know that the resources, technology, and marketing DSOs provide often lead to exponential growth. Trends show investor capital pouring into dental, and forecasts predict continued growth, innovation, and consolidation in the industry.2 Dentists are joining DSOs at a rising rate, In 2017, 7.4% of all practicing dentists were affiliated with a DSO. This number grew to 10.4% in 2020 – a 40% increase.3 In addition to a desire for a greater work-life balance, the increasing burden of student loan debt is a significant reason why in 2019, only 1 in 4 dentists under 35 were in a solo practice.4 According to the Academy of General Dentistry, the average cost of a dental education has doubled since 2000, leaving the average dental school grad with $292,169 in student loan debt. This debt burden limits younger dentists’ ability to access capital needed to invest in solo practices. Investment capital pouring into the dental industry is fostering a culture of innovation, From 3D dental printing to artificial intelligence to laser surgery, dental practices within the DSO model have the resources and support to implement emerging technologies and cutting edge treatments that attract patients, improve health outcomes, and ultimately can result in favorable returns. Where there’s capital, there’s competition, and where there’s competition, there’s innovation. In addition, trends like the rising demand for cosmetic dentistry, holistic dentistry, and nontraditional services like cosmetic injections will see the dental industry and profession continue to evolve, grow, and prosper. Alternative investment strategies like the private placement funding initiative offered by Operation Dental allows dentists to stay in control and have a stake in the corporate side of their practice, Private placement funding allows a company to sell shares of company stock to a select group of investors privately instead of the public. Because the company can stay private, dentists can feel more confident about the culture of their practice and their clinical autonomy staying true.

What is the full name of DSO?
A digital storage oscilloscope ( DSO ) is an oscilloscope which stores and analyses the input signal digitally rather than using analog techniques. It is now the most common type of oscilloscope in use because of the advanced trigger, storage, display and measurement features which it typically provides.
The input analogue signal is sampled and then converted into a digital record of the amplitude of the signal at each sample time. The sampling frequency should be not less than the Nyquist rate to avoid aliasing, These digital values are then turned back into an analogue signal for display on a cathode ray tube (CRT), or transformed as needed for the various possible types of output— liquid crystal display, chart recorder, plotter or network interface,
Digital storage oscilloscope costs vary widely; bench-top self-contained instruments (complete with displays) start at US$300 or even less, with high-performance models selling for tens of thousands of dollars. Small, pocket-size models, limited in function, may retail for as little as US$50.
What does DSO stand for in marketing?
Days inventory outstanding (DIO) is a working capital management ratio that measures the average number of days that a company holds inventory for before turning it into sales. The lower the figure, the shorter the period that cash is tied up in inventory and the lower the risk that stock will become obsolete.
What does DSO stand for in logistics?
Metric of the Month: Days Sales Outstanding Days sales outstanding (DSO) is calculated as 360 days divided by the ratio of net sales, divided by the average month-end trade accounts receivable balance (excluding all unbilled receivables). It is a quick, high-level measure of the state of an organization’s receivables.
A high number of days could indicate problems receiving prompt payment from customers. A low number of days sales outstanding indicates a more efficient business. As shown in the graph, American Productivity and Quality Center’s (APQC’s) Open Standards Benchmarking in supply chain planning shows that bottom performers have a DSO of 52 days, whereas top performers cut their DOS almost in half to 29 days.
Managing DSO can be a good step to maintain the capital needed for growth. In addition, a lower DSO often results in a decrease in uncertainty for the supplier, who can be more confident in its financial standing and ability to fill the necessary orders.
- Organizations can improve DSO using a two-pronged approach: Identify first the internal and then the external problems that affect a customer’s ability to pay.
- Internally, organizations should address invoice errors, which can delay how promptly a customer receives a correct invoice.
- Externally, organizations should conduct both customer and customer-segment analysis, particularly on high-value customers.
By examining the payment histories of major customers and customer industry segments, as well as external developments that may affect customers in the future, organizations gain a clearer picture of which customers are slow to pay and which have the potential to become so in the future.
