Diagnosing Healthcare is a social-impact documentary that centers on health care reform. The intention of the film is to start a discussion and to spur debate about the future of health care. Through artistic footage, the film identifies the most problematic areas of the current mainstream health care system. Additionally, the film offers solutions in the form of fully developed, but relatively unknown, alternative health care plans. One such plan, developed by the film's creator (Paul Roberts), offers a 40% ($1.4 Trillion per year) cost-savings over the current cost of health care in America, while improving the care delivered. The film also features the merits of the Free-Market health care system. The solutions proposed in the film can be applied around the world as well. The current COVID-19 pandemic highlights the contemporary relevance and importance of the film.
