Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue America’s Healthcare

This is available in theaters in select cities and also on pay-per-view.  We watched in our own home for only $5.99.  It was so worthwhile.

Doctors are paid for the number of patients they see and the number of procedures they perform.  If they spend 5 minutes with the patient and then put in at stent, they get paid about $1,500.  If they want to spend 45 minutes with a patient to try to find out what their true problem is, they’d get paid about $15.  It’s a completely irrational system.  There is one hospital mentioned in the film that pays their doctors a salary, so they’re not pushing unwarranted procedures on patients:  The Cleveland Clinic.

Please take the time to watch, so you are in the know when you or your loved ones go to the doctor.

If People Stop Getting Cancer, We Stop Making Profits

This goes along so well with the documentary we just watched called Escape Fire:  The Fight to Rescue America’s Healthcare.  Doctors are paid for number of patients seen and procedures done.  It does not pay to spend 45 minutes educating a patient about nutrition that can cure they’re illness.
