- Program Description
Today, providing health care is a profit-driven enterprise that is subject to the forces of the marketplace and operated by administrators with their eyes on the bottom line. But has too much of the decision-making power been taken away from the doctors, nurses and patients? FRONTLINE looks at how, in the wake of a failed attempt by the Clinton administration to provide universal health care for every American, the industry has undergone a dramatic transformation. The program examines the changing health-care industry through an in- depth look at how California and Massachusetts hospitals are coping with this health-care revolution.
