It's time to get telehealth to everyone who needs it

From Steve Hards at TA, but worth repeating...
The studies of tens of thousands of patients show the value of e-care and frankly, we don't need "further study" and decades and billions of dollars more before implementing e-care models that are already here today. We simply don't have the time to delay any further, especially when so many people do not have access to any care today, face-to-face or electronic.'
