It was actually pretty sad and this is not personal at all and back in 2009 I said when nominated that Health IT would eat her up one day meaning she was going to get duped and duped again by insurers.
What is the technology working with for the insurance exchanges? Complex technologies for profits used by insurance companies...Algo Duping as I call it. There's a bunch of videos here for those who want to learn a little bit about math modeling with banks and insurers...you will not look at this the same if you take some of this knowledge in and watch the videos...it's OMG, but rather reality...
The short order computer code kitchen burned down years ago and yes I liked those early days myself as it was a lot easier to write code, I used to do that, but quit as I would not do it today, way too complex for a single developer and teams are needed.
The video interviews were done in 2 parts. The quality of the videos is not great here and Stewart starts out with the glitches. She was also on the Rachel Maddow show tonight and heard a lot of the same. There’s a lot of “accounts” created and people are shopping. She says 6 out of 10 will get a policy for under $100 a month, so we have to wait to see on this as all the tax credits come in to play. Stewart talks about business getting the break and consumers don’t.
The second video gets a little more interesting. Stewart says the insurance market is less than ideal as we are playing with “crazy town”…She hits the benefits for part time employees will be there. What’s funny is she hits on paying a premium like a cable bill and says we all have cable…not me…I don’t watch enough TV. Stewart again hits the Single Payer solution near the end and does a little walk…Sebelius says we are facing the end of the western civilization…what?
The enrollment is a little “rockier” than what we want. We know the answer to that one, the IT infrastructure planning and coding should have started a lot earlier than it did. Overall the interview was fine, somewhat “canned” but ok. We know this could not be “hurried up” as she wished a few months ago, but again that’s folks with no IT background handling all of this. This link below, one of the big public blunders in not understanding code development as IT folks work full steam ahead and this insulted a lot of people and showed lack of Health IT knowledge, sad as everyone in technology said "what it the heck is that woman talking about"...
Speed Up Rate of Change in Health IT?–“Short Order Code Kitchen Burned Down a Few Years Ago and There Was No Fire Sale”..IT Infrastructure Chance and Revisions Takes a Lot of ”Code”, “Time” and “ Most Importantly Money”
If the exchanges don’t work, use the phone or wait a few weeks and try it again and hopefully we won’t need Facebook to help out on this:)
MSNBC Maddow was a little kinder with their interview last night but again the same scripted presentation mostly. Here's what I said and about got clobbered in 2009, but when you work with data and code, you see it coming and I'm not the only one, I just have a bigger mouth and try to share some of this to help if I can:)
DeParle too, again both no match for the elaborate math models and algorithms of complexities from the insurers, duped and duped again. Several weeks ago DeParle was running around telling everyone the IT work was done for the exchanges..again nothing personal but give people "real" information and don't make it up.
