Deep Dive with Dr. Geoffrey Malafsky, Dr. Robin Bloor and InsideAnalysis —
The high-profile federal Web site, Healthcare.gov, suffered an epic failure to launch on Oct. 1, but what, exactly, went wrong? In this inaugural episode of Deep Dive, we interviewed veteran federal contractor and Data Scientist, Dr. Geoffrey Malafsky of Phasic Systems, Inc., and Dr. Robin Bloor, Data Scientist and Co-Founder of InsideAnalysis.com, as they discussed the brass tacks of why Obamacare’s flagship sank in the harbor, and what can be done about it.
Malafsky provided granular details surrounding Healthcare.gov’s Web architecture, as well as the development atmosphere, critical strategic choices taken, the constraints of federal Information Technology acquisition practices, and the value of realistic data resolution practices and methodologies.
Malafsky discussed various ways to get the site up and running. In particular, Malafsky he outlined his PSI-KORS Methodology, which was used to save a $300 million data resolution project with the United States Navy.SLIDES TRANSCRIPT
