CNN to air health care documentary Sunday

March 8, 2013

CNN on Sunday will air a 2012 documentary titled “Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare.” The documentary was shared widely on last year’s film festival circuit. According to the press release, the film “reveals flaws in the notion that the health care delivered via America’s patchwork of facilities, practitioners and insurers offers good value for its outcomes.” According to CNN, the two-hour broadcast, at 8 and 11 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Time, will be followed by a 30-minute discussion moderated by CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, M.D., “focused on how Americans can cut through the red tape to save money and increase their access to health care.”
