We are a strategic management consulting
company. We help a primary care organization
navigate the environment to resolve strategic
issues, establish internal objectives, and
integrate patient-centered, value-based,
evidence-based processes into the organization.
The processes we focus on are associated with
diabetes prevention treatment services.
Diabetes prevention often involves the treatment
of prediabetes. One of the common treatment
targets of prediabetes is overfat.
is a condition characterized by a blood glucose
level that is higher than normal, but not high
enough to be called diabetes. Emphasis
on diabetes prevention should start when a
person is diagnosed with prediabetes. We
define overfat as excess, harmful body
fat. Overfat includes obesity, overweight,
and belly fat.
We focus on
diabetes prevention to help an organization
improve patient health and lower costs. We
continually monitor research and investigate
business opportunities associated with diabetes
prevention and overfat. We can help a primary care
organization make timely decisions concerning
diabetes prevention services. And we can help the
organization establish objectives and measurements
for the processes that enable the organization to
deliver the services.
continually examine the healthcare environment to
gain clinical and business insight pertinent to
diabetes prevention. Examining the environment,
especially an organization's external environment,
to gain insight is often called environmental scanning and
analysis. We use our analysis results
to help identify actions an organization 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. And later, we added diabetes
prevention to our focus. We bring extensive
strategic-information analysis and management
experience to these healthcare industry segments.
overfat and diabetes prevention segments of the
healthcare industry include organizations that
offer non-surgical medical programs employing
diet, exercise, behavior modification, and
medication to achieve weight loss or improve
glucose management. However, the
overfat and diabetes prevention healthcare
segments are influenced by organizations that
perform bariatric or metabolic surgery,
because bariatric or metabolic surgery can
cause weight loss and improve glucose
management. And if prediabetes progresses to
type 2 diabetes, bariatric or metabolic
surgery might be an option worthy of
We, at Information
Uncover, access and evaluate diabetes
prevention and overfat related information on an
ongoing basis. We read extensively, participate in
diabetes prevention and overfat related events,
and talk with overfat and diabetes prevention
experts. We perform these activities so
that we can offer clients the best in diabetes
prevention and overfat information analysis
for strategy formulation, decision making, and
some of the things we can do: We can
help a primary care practice integrate processes
into the organization that deal with chronic
diseases -- particularly diabetes prevention and
can navigate the healthcare industry and help a
practice make diabetes prevention, overfat, and
chronic disease related strategic decisions. We
can work with an organization to determine which
competitors, and other environmental forces, might
affect the organization's success as it relates to

focus on diabetes prevention, overfat
research and business issues. We help a
primary care organization integrate diabetes
prevention processes into the organization
that deliver patient-centered, value-based,
evidence-based services to patients. The
processes can improve health outcomes, lower
healthcare costs, and improve practice
over twelve years, we have sponsored an
overfat industry related blog.
We recently started adding articles on diabetes
prevention and prediabetes. In the blog
articles, we talk mostly about items associated
with the diabetes prevention, prediabetes and
overfat segments of the healthcare industry. The
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 organization might
consider in its strategic management.
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.
