KQED 9: Tue, Sep 25, 2012 -- 11:00 PM

As rising health care costs threaten to bankrupt the country, this documentary tackles the medical, ethical and financial challenges of containing runaway health care spending. In addition to illuminating the so-called waste and overtreatment that pervade our medical system, it explores promising ways to reduce health care expenditures while improving the overall quality of medical care. The film captures the painful end-of-life treatment choices made by patients and their families, ranging from very aggressive interventions in the ICU to palliative care at home. It also investigates the controversy surrounding diagnostic testing and screening as well as the shocking treatment variations among patients receiving a variety of elective procedures.
