||America's managed care system was designed to provide coordinated preventive and long-term healthcare better than individual doctors could in yesterday's fragmented fee-for-service system. Have HMOs lived up to that promise? In this program, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Hedrick Smith investigates Kaiser Permanente-the largest nonprofit HMO in the U.S.-and its social mission of lifetime care. Although it has pioneered improvements such as mass screening for colon cancer and special team care for patients with diabetes and HIV, Kaiser Permanente has also drawn fire for unpopular cost-cutting measures and for allegedly neglecting needy communities.
