The rocky rollout of HealthCare.gov, the website for people to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, has garnered a lot of attention from the media as well as technology analysts. Here's our daily roundup of some of the key reports you may have missed:

  • ‘A Miserable Five Weeks’: Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius summed up the HealthCare.gov launch this way: "There is no excuse for what has been a miserable five weeks."
  • Failed Launch’s First Casualty? The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ chief information officer is stepping down, effective Nov. 15.  It’s not clear how Tony Trenkle was involved with Healthcare.gov, Government Health IT reports, but he appears to be part of the team that in September decided to delay a full security control assessment of the site.

Come to Nextgov Prime in Washington Nov. 20-21 to discuss the biggest challenges and opportunities facing federal IT leaders. Registration is free for federal employees.
