With a background of 20 years in consulting, he assists provider, purchaser and payer organizations with strategic planning and performance improvement. Examples of his ACS work include facilitating an expert task force on the future of selected specialties for one of the nation's largest medical associations, managing technology assessment for a 28-hospital health system, analyzing clinical service lines for research and manufacturing organizations and developing strategic plans for health systems and professional associations. His previous consulting firm, The Bauer Group, specialized in consumer-focused strategic planning and development of clinical affiliation agreements for multi-hospital networks.

In addition, Dr. Bauer has 17 years of professional academic experience. He was a full-time teacher and administrator at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, where he held appointments as an associate professor and as Assistant Chancellor for Planning and Program Development. He served concurrently for four years as Health Policy Adviser to Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm. Dr. Bauer then worked as a visiting professor in the Administrative Medicine Program at the Medical School of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he taught physician leaders how to evaluate research reports and other published studies. Dr. Bauer was also a Senior Fellow at the Center for the New West in Denver.

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.

  • The Reality of Health Reform: Practical Paths to Survival and Growth - As one of the few speakers who maintained political independence during the latest battles to overhaul parts of the health care system, Dr. Bauer presents a balanced analysis of differences between reform's rhetoric and reality. He explains what happened in Washington, what's next, and what to do in response to the overhaul law passed in March, 2010. This presentation is constantly updated to reflect the ongoing battles between competing interest groups, and it forecasts important changes that are still likely to happen. His informative, comprehensive speech begins with a "big picture" view and then focuses on implications and responses from the perspective of each audience's specific interests.

  • Forecasting the Future of Health Care: Challenges and Opportunities - One of the country's most respected health futurists, Dr. Bauer presents an informative and entertaining introduction to the forces that define possibilities for medical care. He explains different methods for looking ahead and forecasts the future based on his in-depth analysis of the key trends-medical science, technology, demography and epidemiology, reimbursement, and organization of the delivery system. Implications of key trends and practical responses are presented with respect to the audience's special interests. This presentation is continually updated to reflect the latest changes in forces that shape the future.

  • Paradox and Imperatives in Health Care: Efficiency, Effectiveness and E-Transformation - This presentation summarizes the key points of Dr. Bauer's challenging book by the same title. He shows why unprecedented financial circumstances can lead to failure for health care providers that pursue "business as usual." Dr. Bauer clearly explains how sound economic principles and proven management tools can prevent failures, and he reveals how providers can increase net revenue and provide the quality of care that payers and consumers are demanding at prices they are willing and able to pay. It shows why waste must be eliminated and how future-focused leaders can put their organizations on a positive path.
