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.
