Efforts to improve the performance of the Online Marketplace shopping experience will continue

The Online Marketplace continues to be the focus of President Obama and his White House staff, as efforts ramp up to improve the performance of the online Marketplace shopping experience for individuals purchasing health care insurance. 

The Administration announced this week that it is appointing Jeffrey Zients to spearhead the efforts to get the site operating at greater capacity.

Zients previously held the position of Chief Performance Officer and Deputy Director for the Office of Management and Budget in the Obama Administration, where he was charged with streamlining processes, cutting costs and pursuing best practices across the government.

About 7 million Americans are expected to purchase insurance online during the Marketplace’s first open enrollment period, October 1 through March 31, 2014.
