These two paragraphs say everything about HealthCare.gov’s problems

Paragraph one:

The enrollment records for a significant portion of the Americans who have chosen health plans through the online federal insurance marketplace contain errors — generated by the computer system — that mean they might not get the coverage they’re expecting next month.

 

Paragraph two:

By 6 p.m. Monday, the Web site had had close to 800,000 unique visitors – one of the administration’s targets for the site’s performance — and was set to pass that mark by the end of the day, according to administration officials. And the site processed 18,000 enrollments in the most recent 24-hour period, nearly double the previous record.

  1. From reading this article it seems like these two paragraphs only show a minor part of the governments health care website’s issues. The big issue that stood out to me was with the front-end of the website vs the back-end of the website. I can understand on how fixing the front-end of the website first will make it look more appealing but just fixing that could lead to bigger issues than what are already present. By fixing the back-end of the website, the government could avoid big issues when customers applying for aid input their data into the database linked to the website.
