Newly Designed HealthCare.gov, Built with Support from Aquilent, Goes Live

Aquilent, the recognized leading provider of Cloud, Web and Mobile solutions shaping the next generation of technology for the federal government, today announced that the re-designed HealthCare.gov, built with support from Aquilent, is live. The website - from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) - is the online destination for the Health Insurance Marketplace. The Marketplace will deliver a set of government-regulated and standardized health care plans from which individuals may purchase health insurance that is eligible for federal subsidies.

As a recognized pioneering solutions provider of innovative .Gov solutions in line with the Digital Government Strategy, Aquilent worked as the prime contractor to help re-design this innovative HHS website. The highly consumer-focused HealthCare.gov helps Americans understand their private healthcare choices and select the coverage that best suits their needs when open enrollment begins October 1. At that time, the website will include new functionality so that consumers will be able to create accounts, complete online applications, and shop for qualified health plans. Spanish speaking consumers will be able to utilize the parallel CuidadoDeSalud.gov for the same services. Key features of both websites include social media integration, content that can be easily shared, and collaborative resource links for consumers to get more information. The sites also feature web chat functionality for rapid communication. The sites are built with a responsive design to enable access via a multitude of platforms including desktops, smart-phones, and other mobile devices.

Aquilent played a major role in the support of the re-designed English and Spanish language sites including: technology strategy, cloud-based infrastructure design and implementation, project management, responsive design, user experience, content development and migration, Section 508 compliance for accessibility, testing, and authorization to operate (ATO) certification to help ensure compliance with rigid security requirements. Aquilent will continue to maintain and update HealthCare.gov and prepare for the opening of the Health Insurance Marketplace.

"HHS continues to set high benchmarks of excellence for engaging consumers and HealthCare.gov is a powerful example," stated Aquilent CEO David Fout. "With this new, enhanced site, the Health Insurance Marketplace offers a truly interactive and easy-to-use forum for consumers. Aquilent continues our track record of partnering with our customers by helping to guide the development of this innovative site and helping HHS further its important mission."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
