Dr. Jeff Bauer presents compelling scientific proof why consumers deserve direct access to specialized nurses, clinical pharmacists, physical therapists, and other advanced practitioners who provide their health services at least as well as physicians—at lower cost.  His entertaining and informative analysis shows why doctors’ old arguments against “mid-levels” are no longer defensible and why competition is the essential next step toward better and less-expensive health care for all Americans.

This fast-paced, example-filled presentation shows how and why health care will change more in this decade than it did in the previous 50 years.  It explores individual implications of the revolution in medical science, new capabilities of information and communications technologies, the impact of demographic shifts in the US population, and the economy’s role in restructuring supply and demand for medical services. Reform and other changes are realistically examined, with specific recommendations tailored to the audience’s interest in health care (consumer, purchaser, provider, etc.).  This is a unique insider presentation for outsiders — telling audiences how to optimize individual and corporate interactions with the health care system.
