In addition to providing an unforgettable learning experience for health care providers, Lewis Blackman continues to touch the hearts of all who hear his story. Most recently, The Faces of Medical Error…From Tears to Transparency: The Story of Lewis Blackman, was awarded a 2009 Aegis Award—a worldwide film industry honor given to the very best film and video productions of the year. Of the 2,109 entries, The Lewis Blackman Story received top honors, achieving the highest score awarded by a panel of peer judges.
Greg Vass, Executive Producer at SolidLine Media and partner to Transparent Health in the creation of the film said, “It always feels great to be recognized as the best in our field, but I think it feels even better to be part of such a special production project—one that is truly changing healthcare.”
For all of us at Transparent Health, the journey of making this educational film has forever changed us for the better. By sharing Lewis’ story we hope to help providers understand better ways of both preventing and managing medical error while embracing transparency and full disclosure related to the care they provide. We also hope to empower patients and their families by providing relevant information they can carry with them to the hospital. Please view the trailer to the film and share your comments:
