Rx: The Quiet Revolution

Filmmaker David Grubin, the son of a general practitioner, takes his camera across the country to focus on America's health care delivery system and discovers a quiet revolution - doctors, nurses, and health care professionals who are transforming the way we receive our medical care and lowering costs at the same time. He chronicles a family practice in Maine challenged to treat patients with chronic illnesses; a rural health clinic in Mississippi fighting diabetes with the aid of an electronic communications device; a health system in Alaska owned and operated by Native Alaskans; and a health care facility for seniors in San Francisco dedicated to making it possible for frail, elderly Americans to live with dignity in their own homes.
