ESCAPE FIRE: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare tackles one of the most pressing issues of our time: what can be done to save our broken medical system? The film examines the powerful forces trying to maintain the status quo in a medical industry designed for quick fixes rather than prevention, for profit-driven care rather than patient-driven care. After decades of resistance, a movement to bring innovative high-touch, low-cost methods of prevention and healing into our high-tech, costly system is finally gaining ground. ESCAPE FIRE follows dramatic human stories as well as leaders fighting to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the US military. The film is about a way out, about saving the health of a nation.Written by
Escape Fire Highlights Many of the Changes Necessary for Sustainability
Despite previous reviews that claimed the movie contained cliché statistics and arguments, I was impressed by the research invested and the solutions presented in Escape Fire. As a soon to be actuarial intern, I have often asked myself internally how I may lend a hand in the battle against rising costs in healthcare that are both sidelining our crippled and crippling our economy. After watching Escape Fire, I now feel like I have some of the answers I needed to answer that question. The documentary not only presents the issues but also potential and viable solutions. It is important that we all make an effort to understand the healthcare crisis, and Escape Fire may be an important tool in the pursuit. As someone who has worked in both public and private sectors of healthcare and one who will soon be very heavily immersed in the financial implications of our current healthcare system, I highly recommend the documentary to any concerned member of our society.
