Airing on Thursday, July 9, 2015: When asked how they want to die, most Americans say at home, surrounded by loved ones. But most Americans die in hospitals, intensive care units or nursing homes. That’s one of the reasons why Medicare’s decision to reimburse doctors for conversations with patients about end-of-life care is so significant. We look at what that will mean for the broader medical landscape, and what it means for doctors and patients. Next: Paramount Pictures is attempting to shorten the window between a movie’s theatrical release date and its availability on home entertainment platforms. It will give theater chains Cineplex and AMC a cut of the revenue it makes from early release sales.
