About the film.

Based on Nicholas Webb’s deep research and upcoming book, The Healthcare Mandate (McGraw-Hill), this film bravely prescribes a path forward for one of the world’s largest and most dysfunctional industries. Unlike other documentaries that attempt to address the problems in healthcare through the vilification of everything from restaurants to drug companies, this film is different. It addresses the “big shift” that will occur in healthcare that will save millions of lives while improving the human experience in the healthcare system. The big shift is the rapid transition from an industry focused on sickness intervention to prevention and anticipation.

Fixing Healthcare addresses the three big enablers of the big shift that include hyper-consumerization, enabling/connected technologies, and new economic/value models. This is more than just a plan for the future, it is the genesis of a movement wherein patients in society are demanding better health over more treatment.

The cast comprises world-renowned healthcare experts that speak on everything from the impact of behavioral health, digital health, healthcare economics, and of course, to prevention and wellness. This film offers up real, responsible solutions with the principal goal of changing the trajectory of healthcare for the betterment of patients and healthcare providers.

Pre-Teaser

Predictive and Preventive focus

The theme of “big shifts” will be introduced – most notably the shift from a diagnostic and treatment centric view of healthcare to one of Predictive and Preventive.

 

How we got here.

How did healthcare become so broken?

First Aid

In the beginning, we were really limited to rendering basic first aid.

Infectious Disease

Major inflection point as we developed scientific knowledge (vaccines, antibiotics) that launched us into the next phase of healthcare…

Modern Medicine

An economic system was developed to financially reward healthcare to “do something” to patients (surgeries, more drugs, and medical devices), focusing on health over prevention.

Hyper Intervention

Healthcare costs continue to skyrocket – we’re running out of money, medical care and devices are being rationed, patient populations are getting more sick.

The Big

Shift

The shift of sickness focus of diagnosis and treatment to one of anticipation and prevention. A new movement that builds a sustainable and scalable healthcare system that represents a massive disruptive change and rewarding the healthcare industry for keeping you healthy.
