OK from just the title one could think this post will be about traffic. And there are many days that this could be true. However, this week finds me in Spokane, and (with all due respect to my EWA friends) there is NO traffic in Spokane. Once, I have had to slow down and do the actual speed limit, the rest of the time, we are flying.
Today I am doing something I never do. I am turning over my daily blog to help my buddy Jim Devitt on his new and very important endeavor. I am copying and pasting the post from his blog The Card.
For the record I donated to this Crowd fund project for two reasons:
I have complete faith in Jim. In the 30 years I have known him he has never steered me wrong, and has always been there when I needed him. He has very high standards. I trust the man completely! If he is willing to sign his name to it, it’s a good cause!
After reading through it, its one helluva good idea!
But y’all don’t know Jim. So take my word for it, and read what he has. Make your own decisions, but I will, without reservation, vouch for the character and integrity of the man who has written this post!

Please help us bring immediate and affordable healthcare to everyone …
Hi, I’m reaching out to you today for your help. The systemic problems of our healthcare system has led to families going bankrupt, doctors shortages and unbearable wait times to see health care professionals.
I’ve worked in Healthcare for over 20 years, starting out on the clinical side, treating patients. Before long, I ended up in practice management and saw first hand how broken the healthcare system is.
The Affordable Care Act will insure millions more, which means the already overloaded healthcare system will become more overloaded.
We believe that we can help fix the system with Telemedicine.
Telemedicine is one of the most powerful tools healthcare providers can use to improve patient care, increase access and lower costs. Telemedicine exists today, but primarily in remote populations or for doctor to doctor consultation in areas where there’s a shortage of expertise.
The fact is, everyone should have access to Telemedicine. Today’s generation uses and trusts mobile applications to do just about everything. We can use the same technology to deliver healthcare to your living room.
Please visit our campaign page to learn more and to see some of the great perks we’re giving away with your contribution. Thank You!
