Doctor Hotspot

Doctor Hotspot
Jul. 26, 2011
20 minutes

New Yorker writer and FRONTLINE correspondent Atul Gawande reports on a doctor in Camden, N.J., who actually seeks out the community's sickest -- and most expensive -- patients. Dr. Jeffrey Brenner and his team are pioneering a practice called "hotspotting," in which medical care is focused on the hardest-to-treat to improve their health and dramatically reduce costs.

Producer(s): Tom Jennings
