Keynote: From Build to Run at the Colorado Health Insurance Exchange - Achieving Long Term Sustainability through Better Architecture. -
Proteus Duxbury, CTO, Connect for Health Colorado -
The Affordable Care Act brought with it the necessity to create health insurance exchanges in many states.
Connect for Health Colorado is a marketplace that opened in October 2013 to help individuals, families and small employers across Colorado purchase health insurance and apply for new federal financial assistance to reduce costs.
This talk will provide key observations from the successful rollout of the Connect for Health Colorado health insurance exchange, along with a discussion of ongoing challenges. An architecture roadmap for achieving long term sustainability will be presented as well.
