Part II: Television Productions, 1986-2009 (continued)
BOX 287-325 "Critical Condition," 1997-2001
"Critical Condition" is a four-part series that investigates the American healthcare system. The first segment, “The Quality Gap,” looks at how medical errors kills thousands of Americans every year. Specific story topics include a Veterans Affairs hospital and how heart surgeries are reported in New York and Northern New England hospitals. “The Chronically Ill” explores how managed care is covered by insurance companies Humana and Kasier Permanente. As the financial objectives of insurance companies conflict with treating chronically ill patients, coverage is often denied. “The Idealistic HMO” looks at Kaiser Permanente as a not-for-profit HMO (health maintenance organization) and their AIDS and diabetes programs, whose patients require costly continual treatment. “The Uninsured” segment focuses on the working poor, those with employers who do not provide health insurance cannot afford to pay for medical coverage on their own. Smith looks at Tenn-Care in Tennessee and the Child Health Insurance Program, both programs created to cover the uninsured, and how they both help and fall short in their efforts. This production was created in conjunction with "Dr. Solomon’s Dilemma," and may contain related information. Materials include production bibles, interview transcripts, research, digital files, segment planning documents, and interview transcript pulls.
