Money-Driven Medicine provides the essential introduction Americans need if we are to address the unmet healthcare policy challenges of the next decade. Produced by Academy Award winner Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side; Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) and inspired by Maggie Mahar’s acclaimed book, Money Driven Medicine: The Real Reason Health Care Costs So Much, it offers the only systemic look on film at the economics underlying — and often undermining — our $2.6 trillion healthcare system.
The film interweaves the stories of patients and doctors ensnared in the system with insights by thought-leaders such as Dr. Donald Berwick, Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Dr. James Weinstein of Dartmouth and bio-ethicist Dr. Larry Churchill of Vanderbilt. Money-Driven Medicine goes beyond health insurance reform as it lays out the looming policy challenges for the next decade if we are to provide all Americans effective, high quality, patient-centered care while containing costs and reducing wasteful, even risky procedures.
