Hacking Healthcare with @TheBigHeist: Open Enrollment & DPC #popup #patientchat

November 6, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm



You’re Invited! Join us for a “pop-up” Empowered Patient Chat with The Big Heist and Kat Quinn, MBA (@PopHealthChick).

In May of 2015, Dave Chase and Leonard Kish published 95 Theses for a New Health Ecosystem on the Medium platform to allow for maximum collaboration as they started envisioning what a functional healthcare system would look like. From there, the Health Rosetta project took form and has now led to the effort to produce a documentary called The Big Heist. Dave, the film’s Executive Producer, has been “following the money” to lay out a clear picture of the problems caused by the “healthcare status quo” and to shine a light on proven fixes that can be scaled up.

The Health Rosetta project is centered on an “open source” philosophy and belief that involvement from all levels will be needed to make wide-scale changes in the healthcare system. This year in our Empowered Patient Chat Series, we’ve talked about “open source healthcare” from the patient perspective through a chat on The Open Patient Documentary. We also chatted with Health Rosetta contributor and Direct Primary Care practitioner Dr. Rob Lamberts about Patient-Centered Care. For this chat we’ll take a bigger picture perspective on the healthcare system and Direct Primary Care.

Guiding our discussion will be the following Topic (T:) Questions:

T1: What are some of the healthcare issues that @TheBigHeist is trying to bring to light? Why a film?
T2: U.S. healthcare cost increases are out-pacing other countries. How is this impacting individuals and communities?
T3: What is Direct Primary Care (DPC)? Why should patients, especially those participating in open enrollment, consider it?
T4: The Health Rosetta project seeks to bring “open source” thinking to healthcare & lower costs. Why is DPC an initial focus?
T5: How can people get involved with the film and the movement to replace the healthcare status quo?

Patient Chat Pop Ups are held at varying days and times, usually once per month. “Regular” chats are generally held every other Friday at 1:00pmET.

We hope to see you Sunday, November 6th on Twitter (or tchat.io/rooms/patientchat) at 5:00 pm Pacific / 8:00 pm Eastern. Be sure to include the hashtag #patientchat in all your responses! Click HERE to learn more about our Empowered #patientchat Series and how to participate.

About The Big Heist

bg-logoHealth Rosetta Films, The Health Rosetta Group, and Dave Chase are excited to announce the development crowdfund for The Big Heist, a development stage feature film to catalyze action towards building a Health 3.0 world that provides high-quality care at lower costs, while providing a better experience for all patients and caregivers.

The Big Heist will be The Big Short meets Super Size Me for our broken healthcare system—a satirical, follow-the-money film on the destruction caused by healthcare’s status quo… and the coming redemption. It’s a story of hope, built on the stories of those fixing it from the ground up.

Nearly everyone knows that our healthcare system is broken, but most don’t know the enormous collateral damage hyper-inflating costs cause. From stagnant wages to shattered public education budgets, decades of hyper-inflating healthcare costs have taken from nearly every corner and group in the United States. The Big Heist will show the problems and connections to the collateral damage in an entertaining and accessible way.

Despite diving into the problems, The Big Heist will be a story of how, showing real-life solutions in action from around the country, across the political spectrum, and in the public and private sector. It will show that many of the most powerful solutions are relatively simple to implement and how every citizen can take action to fix healthcare.

Along with the film, The Big Heist will leverage an online platform for people affected by our healthcare system to share their stories and experiences. This will build a ground swell of support for the fixes, creating a snowball effect that will lead to fixing our broken healthcare system.
