Jeff Bauer Speaker Biography


Dr. Jeff Bauer is an internationally recognized health futurist and medical economist. As an independent industry thought leader, he forecasts the evolution of health care and develops practical approaches to improving the medical sector of the American economy. He is widely known for his specific proposals to create an efficient and effective health care delivery system through multi-stakeholder partnerships and other initiatives focused in the private sector.

Dr. Bauer has published more than 225 articles, books, Web pages, and videos on health care delivery. He speaks frequently to national and international audiences about key trends in health care, medical science, technology, information systems, reimbursement, public policy, health reform, and creative problem-solving. Dr. Bauer is quoted often in the national press and writes regularly for professional journals that cover the business of health care.

His latest books are Paradox and Imperatives in Health Care: How Efficiency, Effectiveness, and E-Transformation Can Conquer Waste and Optimize Quality (Productivity Press, 2008) and Statistical Analysis for Health Care Decision-Makers (CRC Press, 2009). His two previous books are Telemedicine and the Reinvention of Health Care: The Seventh Revolution in Medicine (McGraw-Hill, 1999) and Not What the Doctor Ordered (McGraw-Hill, 1998). He is currently finishing a book on strategic forecasting methodologies, Upgrading Leadership's Crystal Ball: Five Reasons Why Forecasting Must Replace Predicting and How to Make the Strategic Change in Business and Public Policy (Taylor & Francis, Autumn 2013).

As a consultant, he has assisted hundreds of provider, purchaser, and payer organizations with strategic planning and performance improvement. He served as Vice President for Health Care Forecasting and Strategy for ACS, a Xerox Company, from 1999 to 2010. His previous consulting firm, The Bauer Group, specialized in consumer-focused strategic planning and development of clinical affiliation agreements for multi-hospital networks from 1984 to 1992.

In addition, Dr. Bauer has a strong foundation of academic experience. He was a full-time teacher and administrator at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver from 1973 to 1984, where he held appointments as associate professor and as Assistant Chancellor for Planning and Program Development. He also served concurrently for four years as Health Policy Adviser to Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm. From 1992 to 1998, Dr. Bauer was a visiting professor in Administrative Medicine at the Medical School of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he taught physician leaders how to evaluate research reports and other published studies.

He received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Colorado-Boulder. He graduated from Colorado College in Colorado Springs with a B.A. in economics and completed a certificate in political studies at the University of Paris (France). During his academic career, he was a Boettcher Scholar, a Ford Foundation Independent Scholar, a Fulbright Scholar (Switzerland), and a Kellogg Foundation National Fellow. Dr. Bauer lives in Chicago, where he occasionally displays his paintings in art galleries. He is an avid fan of music and a member of the Governing Board of the Chicago Symphony Association.

 

"The Uncertain and Exciting Future of Health Care: Exploring a New Realm of Possibilities" 

This fast-paced and informative presentation shows how and why health care will change more in this decade than it did in the previous 50 years.  From a practical perspective, it explores strategic implications of the unprecedented revolution in medical science, transformational capabilities of information technology, the hidden impact of demographic shifts in the US population, and the economy's role in restructuring supply and demand for medical services.  Reform of the delivery system is examined from these perspectives, with recommendations tailored specifically to the audience's position in the medical marketplace.

       
"A Realistic Update on Health Reform: Responding to Challenges and Opportunities" 

Everyone agrees that the current health care delivery system is unsustainable, but there's no consensus on common solutions to the underlying problems.  This future-focused presentation evaluates the range of competing approaches to reform -- from government intervention to private initiative -- and provides audiences with an independent perspective on strategies that their organizations can take to succeed in a turbulent marketplace by improving efficiency and effectiveness.

   
"The Art and Science of Looking Ahead: Upgrading the Crystal Ball for Creating a Viable Future"

Based on the speaker's newest book (Summer, 2012), this unique presentation shows audiences how to make strategic changes through informed analysis of actual trends and possible outcomes. It explains the major difference between predicting and forecasting and shows why forecasts must replace predictions as our way to evaluate where we are headed and how to get there successfully.  The presentation identifies resources and makes recommendations appropriate for any organization that wants to expand its realm of future opportunities for success in a turbulent marketplace.  [Note: This speech is for all business audiences; it is not specific to health care.]

“What Outsiders Must Know about Health Reform: How to Prepare Your Business and Yourself”

Health reform isn’t just for health professionals any more!  As employers, leaders in any industry must respond cost-effectively to unprecedented changes in health benefits.  As individuals, they need to know how to deal intelligently with new delivery systems and payment arrangements for their own health care.  Dr. Jeff Bauer, a nationally recognized health futurist and medical economist, has prepared this entertaining, informative presentation to explain the evolving realities of American health care and what leaders in non-health industries can do to ensure appropriate medical services — for themselves and their employees.  A unique and timely program: health reform explained in laymen’s terms by an expert insider, plus recommendations for appropriate responses to new challenges!
