Obamacare IT impossible to implement

“Wow, what can go wrong here? Let me assess this based on my [35] years of experience in this industry.”

  • The federal government is going to build 50 exchanges, using a data hub that doesn’t exist physically
  • Each of the 50 states have different eligibility rules
  • The thousands of pages of bureaucratic rules that will drive requirements haven’t been completed yet
  • the convoluted federal procurement rules for hardware and software have to be adhered to
  • the people hired must meet the Equal Opportunity criteria
  • all GUIs must be handicapped usable
  • Oh, did I mention this will be done by next year?
