healthcare systemObamacare’s health insurance website, Healthcare.gov, is undergoing a revamp to remove certain critical glitches so that it runs more smoothly when people sign up for insurance next year, Reuters reports.

Mike Segar writes that Amazon.com Inc’s web services unit is where the government is now turning for the revamp because of their cloud computing services.

Focus is turning to the cloud computing technology from Amazon to address many of the site’s functions, including a system that automates payments to insurers.

The tight timeline for completion of the website update is raising concerns among the public, Reuters reports, that the site could encounter more problems when it opens for the November 15, 2015 public enrollment date.
