Bad management plagues Obamacare: Ex-Obama advisor
Published: Friday, 25 Oct 2013
The technology problems with the federal Obamacare website were a function of poor management and implementation, said Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, former special advisor on health policy to President Barack Obama.
“The people who were in charge did not assemble a good team and assemble the team that has competency in the exact area you need,” Emanuel told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Friday. The bioethicist was part of the president’s health care reform team for two years until January 2011 and is the brother of former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
The goal has to be an “Amazon-like shopping experience,” he stressed, as the process moves forward to fix the glitches with Healthcare.govthe federally operated health insurance online store, serving the 36 states that are not operating their own.
"Soon as I polish my penny loafers, I'm
going shopping at Bed, Bath and Beyond."
