Three months after its official launch on October 1st 2013, it seems all we can talk about is HealthCare.gov.  Whether it’s the delayed and problematic launch of the Spanish version of the website or the new contact with Accenture, HealthCare.gov is still in the news.

In the newest story, Accenture has been brought on to replace the IT Company that built HealthCare.gov, CGI Federal, when their contact expires.

The Washington Post reports:

“Accenture, one of the world's largest consulting firms, has extensive experience with computer systems on the state level and built California's large new health-insurance exchange. But it has not done substantial work on any Health and Human Services Department program.”

What does this mean for the future of HealthCare.gov? It’s hard to say. While the decision to not renew the CGI contact reflects some lingering concern over the technical difficulties the site experienced, there is no denying the work CGI accomplished during its tenure. The website was built by 55 contractors, it communicates in real time with 112 different systems across the nation, and it had 14.6 million unique visitors in its first 10 days.

With a relatively quick transition period of two months for Accenture to take the reins at HealthCare.gov, we won’t have to wait too long for updates – positive or negative.
