 Strategic Management and Issue Resolution Consulting for Bariatric or Medical Weight Loss Service Providers

  We Help Bariatric Service Providers Navigate the Medical Weight Loss Industry and Resolve Issues

Information Uncover was established in Houston, TX over fifteen years ago. We help a primary care practice resolve strategic issues, establish internal objectives, and add obesity medicine to the practice. We keep abreast of the overall healthcare environment. But we focus on the medical weight loss business environment and industry.

Because we focus on the medical weight loss industry, we can help a practice add obesity medicine to the practice. We can help a practice that offers obesity medicine 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 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 health care industry. Several years ago, we began applying our expertise exclusively to the medical weight loss segment of the health care industry. We bring extensive strategic-information analysis experience to this health care industry segment.

The medical weight loss 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 medical weight loss sub-industry is influenced by organizations that perform weight loss or metabolic surgery, because surgery for weight loss or improved metabolic health is an option an obesity medicine provider might need to present to a patient.  

We, at Information Uncover, access and evaluate obesity medicine-related industry information on an ongoing basis. We read extensively, attend professional development events, and talk with obesity medicine experts. We perform these activities so that we can offer clients the best in medical weight loss 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 obesity medicine to the practice. We can work with a practice to determine which weight loss 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 medical weight loss industry. We help an obesity medicine practice better navigate the medical weight loss industry. We help a practice add obesity 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 nine years, we have sponsored a bariatric industry related blog. In the blog articles, we talk mostly about items associated with the weight loss 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 practice engaged in obesity medicine might consider in its strategic management. 

You can review our Bariatric News Bibliography to see citations associated with the kind of medical weight loss industry related information we identify and analyze. This bibliography is frequently updated.

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.
