Money and Medicine - a necessary first discussion
17 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary film contrasts of the outcomes of healthcare and costs of this care in two hospitals, one in L.A. and one in Utah. It doesn't waste too much time getting to the point of which one is cheaper. The representatives of each system explain and justify their models of care and their costs. I found it most interesting to hear those justifications on both sides, particularly as they relate to how physicians are currently paid in the US. What I got out of this was: is our system basically broken, and will it remain so until we fix the Model for payments? Whether you agree with either side of the documentary, to me what's important is the need for the public to assess these issues and bring fundamental change.
