    GOOD NEWS: HOW HOSPITALS HEAL THEMSELVES

    This news documentary reports on a surprising solution to escalating costs, unnecessary deaths and waste in America's hospitals. Doctors and nurses tell how they did their best, working overtime, while hospital conditions worsened. They were delighted to learn a new way to improve patient care dramatically and reduce unnecessary deaths, suffering, errors, infections and costs without additional resources or government regulations. A patient is not an automobile, butíK The unlikely solution was to use Toyota management principles called "systems thinking" to improve their hospitals. Systems thinking allows leaders and staff to see the complex, modern workplace with "new eyes" and turn problems into improvements. It has saved up to 50 percent in costs, thousands of lives, and avoided hundreds of thousands of medical errors. Significant improvements have already begun in hospitals in several major cities.

    SYSTEM IN CRISIS, A: FINDING A SOLUTION FOR HEALTH CARE IN AMERICA

    Featuring: Robert Pearl, MD

    Program Highlights:
  • How to bring the delivery of medical care into the 21st Century.
  • What to do about the 40 or 50 million Americans who are uninsured.
  • The "best practice" of rewarding prevention, rather than treatment, to thwart disease.

    Robert Pearl believes that we can significantly lower the costs and raise the quality of America's health care, but he knows the solutions won't come easily. While individual health practitioners are doing their best, the overall delivery system is broken. Within a legislative and economic climate that hinders reform, health care continues to follow the 19th century practices of a cottage industry, rather than capitalizing on advances in information technology that could encourage integrated, collaborative care. The answer requires leadership, commitment, and a shared vision for the future. Dr. Pearl's goal is a health care system that provides every patient with the same kind of care that each of us would want for our family, our friends-and ourselves.

    Robert Pearl is CEO of the largest medical group in the nation. He has published over 100 articles in medical journals, and has served as visiting professor at Stanford Business School, Duke University School of Medicine and Harvard School of Public Health. He received his MD from Yale University School of Medicine.
