Episode 006: Using Software to Create Better Countries: Recovering Healthcare.gov with Andy Slavitt Guest Andy Slavitt: Ran Medicare, Medicaid & ACA for President Obama Summary How can we use software to build better countries? Our guest, Andy Slavitt (@aslavitt), helps us answer by telling us what he learned leading the recovery effort on Healthcare.gov in 2013 and 2014.
