Abstract:

(Producer) Currently, three-quarters of all U.S. healthcare dollars are spent on 100 million people with chronic illnesses and conditions. But can a cost-conscious healthcare system, increasingly driven by the market and oriented toward acute care, continue to help them? In this program, Hedrick Smith questions whether the chronically ill will be able to obtain the high-quality, long-term care they need in the years to come. Special reports focus on cases of patients with cancer, victims of stroke and heart disease, and children with congenital illnesses, comparing their treatment by commercial HMOs with the diagnoses and recommendations of independent experts. The program also documents the hardships of home care.
