For our latest podcast we connected with former White House CTO Aneesh Chopra at VentureBeat’s HealthBeat conference to talk about the state of the government’s Healthcare.gov insurance marketplace, among other things.

A year ago, then White House CTO Chopra wrote a guest post for VentureBeat about the government health insurance exchange, which at the time was mired in technical glitches and was considered a big black eye for the Obama Administration’s health reform program. Chopra says a lot has happened since then, and that the exchange has gone on to a new, and better, phase.

Chopra also discusses new digital health approaches to personalizing health care for consumers, and new federal initiatives that will pay health providers to begin sharing health care data with each other.
