Tech experts: Health exchange site needs total overhaul

WASHINGTON — The federal health care exchange was built using 10-year-old technology that may require constant fixes and updates for the next six months and the eventual overhaul of the entire system, technology experts told USA TODAY.

The site could be perfect, but if the systems from which it draws data are not up to speed, it doesn’t matter, said John Engates, chief technology officer at Rackspace, a cloud computer service provider.

“It is a core problem in the sense of it’s fundamental to this thing actually working, but it’s not necessarily a problem that the people who wrote HealthCare.gov can get to,” Engates said.

Even if they had a perfect system, it still won’t work.

That’s the rubber stamp of a federal project FER SURE: designed and built-in obsolescence.

For a BAZILLION dollars.

    I wonder what the cost numbers are going to look like when someone discovers that those that are the highest risk of getting sick in the near future will be far more motivated to sign up for Obamacare than those that at low risk. The insurance payouts as a percentage of premiums collected are going to be astronomical and drive future premiums through the roof.

    Consequences can be a bitch.

    He’ll say it’s designed that way so it “creates more jobs” – for computer wizards.

    The purpose of the software is not to help people get insurance. The purpose is to make money for the contractor. Seems like they are getting more work now, so it’s doing its job just fine.

    Is it true they used a Canadian company to run the website? Why? the US is the leader, still,in computer stuff.SPOILER
    ALERT! I suspect that ‘Canadian’ is a beard for actually a Chinese company.
    Just like the Martin Luther King monument- built in China to save money.( Or to make money) for a handful of crooks in government.

    CGI as far as I can tell is not Chinese. They however, are a Canadian Company that does government computer stuff?? for many countries, and ‘ARE AN OUTSOURCING’ company for various nations (Still may be China there somewhere).. Sounds like the US went to Stalin
    to ask for help with farmers in IOWA.Traitors, traitors– should be in prison. Then we could watch them on ” LOCK_UP’
