Wedgwood Meaningful Movies will present the film Money Driven Medicine on Friday evening, November 13th, at Our Lady of the Lake (Jubilee Hall), 8900 35th Ave NE. Enter at the NE 89th Street corner. Doors open at 6:30 PM and the film begins at 7 PM, followed by discussion.
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.
