Future of Health Care: Accountable Care Organizations


Dr. Kent Bottles speaks on Accountable Care Organizations, examining the changes that are taking place in the provision of healthcare. He says, “What we're trying to do is to change the way we pay for healthcare, to change the incentives, to make it easier for people to give the right care at the right time and for people to only give the necessary care, not unnecessary care, and not to pay people more for unnecessary care."

Moving into specifics, he asks, “Then what's an accountable care organization, why are you talking about global payments? Well, if you have global payment, an accountable care organization would be that organization which accepts the global payment… Mayo Clinic would find this rather easy I think, because it has employed doctors."

Outlining the difficulties inherent in the system, he explains, “In lots of parts of Minnesota, and in lots of parts of America, there are no integrated delivery systems, the doctors' offices are groups of twos and threes and fives, the lab is always a separate corporation, physical therapy is another corporation, the hospital doesn't employ the doctors."


Speeches / Speaking Engagements Back to top


Dr. Kent Bottles brings a wealth of real-world experience to his keynote speeches on health care and health administration. This experience means that his presentations are practical, thought-provoking and have excellent takeaway value.

Dr. Bottles talks on healthcare leadership, explaining why administrators and physicians seem so far apart and how the physician–patient relationship needs to be recast for the 21st-century.

He examines the future for American health care programs, showing how hospitals, doctors and nurses can survive in a post reform world, and urging American Medical Schools to prepare their students for the realities of 21st-century healthcare.

Unlike many professional keynote speakers and healthcare futurists, Dr. Bottles′ approach is practical and grounded in the real world. He was president of a major healthcare organization in Minnesota, was vice president and chief medical officer of a $2 billion health care organization with twenty-three hospitals, and was responsible for the day-to-day operations of a large education and research organization in Michigan.
