||America's healthcare system frequently leaves patients feeling shortchanged, while physicians are forced to overdose on paperwork and managed care companies are helpless to cap their soaring costs. What is the future of this system, as the tidal wave of Baby Boomers surges toward retirement? This program analyzes the symptoms of America's healthcare ills and suggests a prescription for potential cure. Experts include Professor Uwe Reinhardt, of Princeton University; Dr. Joseph Carver, of Aetna U.S. Healthcare; Dr. David Shulkin, of the University of Pennsylvania Health System; and the Editor-in-Chief of The New England Journal of Medicine.
