Physician Consulting Inc, a Colorado-based consulting company, is helping primary care physicians across the country develop thriving prevention-focused practices through incorporation of safe, effective, and scientifically-sound non-pharmaceutical therapies.
PCI identifies well-validated but underutilized non-drug modalities that enable physicians to improve their treatment of common disorders like sleep apnea, adrenal fatigue, chronic allergies, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, chronic pain syndromes, and others for which conventional drug-based options are limited.
The company’s tandem goals are to improve health outcomes while simultaneously providing physicians with new, direct-pay treatment modalities that can strengthen the fiscal heath of their practices.
Founded in 2009 by Kauley Jones, who brings more than 20 years’ experience in medical practice development, the company has grown rapidly to include 12 consultants working with over 400 physicians nationwide.
“So many doctors these days are struggling just to keep their offices open and to make payroll. They’re frightened to the point of paralysis, and so busy working IN their businesses, that they have no time or energy to work ON their businesses. We’re trying to help by doing a lot of that development work for them,” Ms. Jones told Holistic Primary Care.
PCI’s “STEP Plan (Strategic Treatments, Exceptional Profitability), provides physicians with a palette of screening, diagnostic, and therapeutic options as well as guidance on how to incorporate them into existing practices. The modalities represented in the STEP program all share the following characteristics: 1) They address common clinical problems not well-managed under current “standards of care;” 2) They are backed by good science showing improved clinical outcomes; 3) They can create new revenue streams for physicians.
The STEP plan involves partnerships with some of the leading companies in integrative and functional medicine, including: Labrix, Spectracell Laboratories, Sleep Group Solutions, Wellness Pharmacy, TransFormation Enzymes, GUNA Biotherapeutics, MedHot Thermal Imaging, SCENAR Health USA, and Biogenesis Nutraceuticals.
In this, and future editions of Holistic Primary Care, we will explore many of the clinical components comprising PCI’s STEP program, and the ways in which they are transforming practices across the country.
