Matthew Heineman talked about his documentary film, Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare, in which he examines the deficiencies in America’s health care system and explores cost effective solutions such as acupuncture and preventing illness with nutrition and lifestyle changes. He talked about the issues that arise from fee-for-service medical reimbursement that compensates doctors for each procedure, and in some cases leads to overtreatment of preventable diseases. He highlighted alternatives to this method of physician compensation, such as the plan at the Cleveland Clinic which pays doctors a salary and incentivizes them to provide better treatment as measured by patient’s results. He also talked about why he became a filmmaker, and what he plans to do for his next project. Video clips from the film were shown. close
