Escape Fire Revisited: Over Treatment

CNN aired the documentary movie “Escape Fire” Sunday night (and they will rebroadcast it Saturday, March 16 at 8:00 p.m. ET and again at 11:00 p.m.)

The movie looks at issues that need to be addressed to improve our health care system in the U.S., as evident in the movie’s full title, Escape Fire: The Fight To Rescue American Healthcare.

Those issues include the following:

    • An entrenched system;
    • Over medication;
    • Over treatment;
    • Paying more and getting less;
    • Inadequate disease prevention;
    • Reimbursement using the “fee-for-service” model;
    • Failure to treat the whole person.

Here’s a short video by Eric Bashor in the Christian Science Press Room made when the movie first came out, addressing over treatment.
