About

Untreated reveals the mechanism of Healthcare and explores topics such as the CDC guidelines, the lack of individualized patient care, chronic pain and the corruption in the Healthcare System.

Healthcare is one of the most complexed and puzzling industries in America, leaving thousands of patients untreated and ignored, yet America spends more money on Healthcare than any other 2 countries combined.  

Lauren Deluca has found herself caught in the middle of the crossfire. Battling chronic pain and the opioid crisis, for Lauren this is not just an issue that is talked about, this is a personal issue, an issue that she lives every day, and with every new discovery she finds devastation in the path that Healthcare leaves behind.

Pre-Production

Time Thread Studios has been working in collaboration with Lauren Deluca and Jayne Flanders on the research and development of the documentary's story as well as the issues and problems within the Healthcare system since July of 2018.   

The American Healthcare system is one of the most complexed and confusing industries in the world and we wanted to be sure we knew what the facts and our story was going to be, so we spent the last few months and will continue to spend the rest of the year gathering our research and building our story.

 Our goal is to bring forward some of the main issues in Healthcare and propose legitimate answers to some of those problems. There are millions in this country left untreated and we want to be able to give them a voice and a fighting chance to get real help.
