Did you know that 98,000 hospital patients in the U.S. die each year due to medical errors? Or that competition between hospitals is hampering efforts to battle an epidemic of hospital-acquired infections?
Drawing on unprecedented access to health care institutions, REMAKING AMERICAN MEDICINE: HEALTH CARE FOR THE 21ST CENTURY presents detailed and emotionally engaging profiles of individuals struggling to fundamentally change the way that health care is provided. The stories are told through the eyes of doctors, nurses, administrators and patients, showing their struggles, their setbacks and their victories.
From reducing the toll of chronic diseases to transforming the physician-patient relationship, the programs examine universal themes impacting health care systems and patients around the globe.
" . . . an earnest, sincere, and well produced series that is easy to watch. It gives viewers an overview of the failings of the US healthcare system, and how dedicated people are trying to make things better."
