Each year, 200,000 people die from medical errors in American hospitals. There are a number of reasons for these mistakes, but everyone agrees the number would be much lower if doctors shared records. In this Internet age, we assume doctors anywhere can pull up our charts, but the truth is most have no way to do this. Technology is not the problem--the problem stems from a lack of will to invest in it.
This documentary pieces together the story of why it's been so hard for our health care system to do something that other industries, like banking and retail, have been doing securely for years. And it uncovers the tragic, hidden cost on the lives of millions of Americans.
