AMERICAN HOSPITALS: HEALING A BROKEN SYSTEM
Q&A with Special Guests Jim Kahn, MD – MPH of Physicians for a National Health Program and Cindy Young – CARA, Vice President HCN following film
American Hospitals takes a deep dive into the out-of-control cost of hospitals and their transformation into a money-driven big business. How can we incentivize hospitals to provide the highest quality care with the lowest affordable cost to the community? Join Healthy California NOW and its coalition of partners, including the California Nurse-Midwives Association, for a screening and discussion of the new provocative documentary American Hospitals: Healing a Broken System.
Today hospital care is too often about money and power than serving the health needs of patients and the community. “American Hospitals” examines the pernicious incentives driving health care’s astronomical pricing, its monopolistic practices and the pervasive inequities in access and treatment. The film identifies innovative solutions that deserve national attention to restore hospitals to their historic focus on community health at affordable cost.
