    I don’t they are surprising anyone by stating healthcare.gov won’t be perfect. They can throw all the money in the world at it, it still is going to be a flawed system.

    “Health price transparency: Vendor Castlight Health added 42 new customers last quarter, including Texas Instruments, Google, Kellogg and Sprint.”

    This is a big win, since price transparency is more important than ever in a post-ACA world. It is also encouraging to see firms such as Google and Texas Instruments hop on board to increasing price transparency.

    • John R. Graham says:

      It is a great development. My only concern is that this seems to be happening in large employers. Small employers still have old-fashioned health plans. I suppose it is the cost of customer acquisition that drives Castlight to focus on large companies.

    “Stanford University trains surgical residents with Google Glass.”

    I can’t think of a better way to do it. With the camera on Google Glass highly invasive tasks, such as surgery or hardware repairs, can now be easily recorded. As long as the glasses don’t fall off and into the patient.

    “ACN is expected to be paid $175 million as of June, an $84 million increase from the estimate in January when it signed a contract.” What world does the govt work in where a contractor is off by almost 100% of their initial estimate of the cost of the work?! It sounds like healthcare.gov is doing business with the mob – “Fat Tony speaking- remember when we told u it’s was only gonna cost $91 million? We was wrong. You are now gonna pay us $175 million and you’llike it. Capiche?”
