The enormities of health care software

I have been following the numerous complaints about the implementation of the new health care law program. The total world industry is supported by software and firmware that is written, tested and implemented by many software developers.

The new health care system, implemented for the entire United States, goes far beyond any software program ever developed by any corporation in the United States. The startup of any software development takes years to totally implement so that the developer and user are totally satisfied with the end use.

I am sure that Obama was sold by the marketing strategies of how this system will perform and will satisfy the American people. If Obama made a statement about what the program will do, his statements are based on supposedly professional input early in the development of the health care program. This health care program is massive.

No software company(s) can get this health care program implemented and tested for complete user satisfaction in the time it has been in existence. Believe me, I have been involved with many software startups and developments, the beginning looks promising, but after year(s) of testing and de- bugging, software systems go through many updates and revisions, and in most cases end up changing to a new system using a new developer.

Smaller software systems can be tested and implemented successively but the health care, Obamacare system is huge. It will take years to get complete user satisfaction. In the interim there will be hundreds of software updates initiated by software companies that claim they have an answer, it will be ongoing for many years. So pay attention when someone tries to sell you a system that will satisfy all users.
