GOVERN­MENT

Modern Healthcare - - NEWS MAKERS -

Aaron Kar­jala, CIO for Cover Ore­gon, the state’s trou­bled health in­sur­ance ex­change, re­signed April 1.

Ore­gon Gov. John Kitzhaber last month called for re­plac­ing Kar­jala and COO Triz delaRosa when he re­leased a re­port on Cover Ore­gon’s trou­bles. The gover­nor also an­nounced then that Dr. Bruce Gold­berg, who served as in­terim di­rec­tor of Cover Ore­gon, had re­signed as di­rec­tor of the Ore­gon Health Author­ity.

Ore­gon’s web­site has been plagued with prob­lems. In Jan­uary, Kitzhaber hired con­sult­ing firm First Data Corp. to in­ves­ti­gate. Its re­port found sys­temic man­age­ment prob­lems, poor com­mu­ni­ca­tion, shoddy con­tract­ing, and a lack of con­sen­sus on who was ac­count­able for en­sur­ing that the project suc­ceeded.
