Tech Team Podcast, Episode 4: HealthCare.gov's Epic Fail

Monday, December 09, 2013

The disastrous rollout of the Obama administration's storefront for buying health coverage is now in a new phase โ€” a slow recovery. But the questions about how something like this could happen and how a $600 billion technological failure can be prevented in the future made for dozens โ€” dozens โ€” of stories over the past 2 1/2 months.

For our latest episode of the tech team podcast, aka "Our So-Called Digital Lives," we take you through the failure of HealthCare.gov and explore the possibilities of how to prevent it from happening again.

Special thanks to our West Coast-based producer, Cindy Carpien, for pulling this all together.
