About the Film
Directed by Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke, the new, feature-length documentary exposes troubles of American healthcare, contrasting the powerful forces opposing change, with dramatic patient stories and leaders fighting to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government and even the U.S. military.
 
The award-winning film also stresses the importance of changing healthcare in the public and private sectors to focus on prevention rather than costly disease-management to save dollars and lives. As audiences will learn, approximately 75 percent of healthcare spending works to treat preventable diseases, and 20 percent of patients account for 80 percent of health care costs.
