From the Wall Street Journal:
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, responding to the botched launch of the HealthCare.gov health-insurance website, said Wednesday she has called for a review of contracting practices and a new official to oversee risk.
She also said the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which oversaw the HealthCare.gov launch, will bring in a new chief risk officer who will oversee “risk management practices associated with major agency initiatives.”
Maybe the problem isn’t with the contractors (as bad as they are), but with the entire conceit that a centrally-managed approach to health care by the federal government is the best way to produce a quality system. Just a thought.
