 Strategic Management and Issue Resolution Consulting for Primary Care Practices

  We Help Primary Care Practices Integrate Patient-Centered Processes into the Practices

Information Uncover was established in Houston, TX over twenty years ago. We help a primary care practice resolve strategic issues, establish internal objectives, and integrate patient-centered, value-based processes into the practice. We keep abreast of the overall healthcare environment. But we focus on the overfat business environment and industry.

We define overfat as excess, harmful body fat. Overfat can include obesity, overweight, and belly fat. Because we focus on the overfat industry, we can help a practice integrate patient-centered processes that can improve patient outcomes and lower costs. We can help a primary care practice make timely industry-related decisions. And we can help the practice establish appropriate objectives and measurements for those objectives. We continually examine an organization's external business environment. Examining an organization's external business environment is often called environmental scanning and analysis. We use our analysis results to help identify actions a practice might take to seize opportunities and avoid threats.

In the past, we concentrated on the aerospace industry, the computer industry, the air bag industry, and the healthcare industry. Several years ago, we began applying our expertise exclusively to the overfat segment of the healthcare industry. We bring extensive strategic-information analysis experience to this healthcare industry segment.

The overfat sub-industry includes organizations that offer non-surgical medical programs employing diet, exercise, behavior modification, and medication to achieve weight loss or better health. The overfat sub-industry is influenced by organizations that perform bariatric or metabolic surgery, because bariatric or metabolic surgery could be an option an overfat medicine provider might need to present to a patient.  

We, at Information Uncover, access and evaluate overfat medicine-related industry information on an ongoing basis. We read extensively, attend overfat related events, and talk with overfat medicine experts. We perform these activities so that we can offer clients the best in overfat industry information analysis for strategy formulation, decision making, and issue resolution.

Here are some of the things we can do: We can help a practice add overfat processes to the practice. We can work with a practice to determine which competitors, and other environmental forces, might affect the practice. We can help a practice establish internal objectives. And we can help a practice resolve strategic issues.

Here is one thing we don't do: We don't reveal the names of those to whom we are providing or have provided services.  

In summary, we focus on the overfat industry. We help a primary care practice better navigate the overfat industry. We help a practice add overfat medicine to the practice. We help the practice resolve issues and establish objectives.  And we keep the relationship we have with the practice confidential.


For over ten years, we have sponsored an overfat industry related blog. In the blog articles, we talk mostly about items associated with the overfat industry. The blog articles include clinical and business oriented topics. In the blog articles, we often highlight environmental issues or strategic or tactical actions that a primary care practice might consider in its strategic management. 

You can review our Overfat News Bibliography to see citations associated with the kind of overfat industry related information we identify and analyze. Although we recently stopped updating the bibliography, the citations are still useful.

The book, Business Intelligence Using Smart Techniques: Environmental Scanning Using Text Mining and Competitor Analysis Using Scenarios and Manual Simulation, Revised Edition, demonstrates some of our analysis methods. Excerpts from reviews of this book's first edition are shown on this site under the menu item, Book Information. Additional information about the book can be accessed by going to Amazon.com.
