Looks like the geeks operating on Healthcare.gov keep finding more tumors as surgery progresses.
From The Hill:
The agency tasked with implementing the president’s healthcare law said Thursday it had uncovered “new stresses further downstream in the system” that revealed the need for a fresh look at the back-end capacity needs of the online healthcare portal.
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) spokeswoman Julie Bataille . . . said that as additional “volume is exposed to the system, we are identifying new issues and adding them to the punch list.”
The slow response times are an improvement after weeks of the website crashing or producing error messages for potential consumers. But the barrage of new items added to the CMS “punch list” remains a concern.
“This is something that’s a continuous process and we are constantly identifying new issues … putting them on the punch list, and working through them one by one,” Bataille said.
Bataille still claims the website will “work for the bast majority of users” by the end of November.
But my question is, since they don’t know the extent of the illness is, how are they able to offer a prognosis?
