On Thursday Jan. 10, 2013, at 1:00 PM ET, follow #GTonHIX to participate in our TweetChat: Innovation in Focus – States & Health Insurance Exchanges.

Government Technology Staff Writer Sarah Rich (@SarahRichforGT) will host this TweetChat with industry experts about the role Health Insurance Exchanges (HIXs) will play in helping states enhance their delivery of services to citizens.  Chat participants will include:

John Sweeney (@JJS_HIX), IBM’s Senior Product Manager for the Curam solution

Dan Schuyler (@LeavittPartners), Director for Leavitt Partners’ HIX practice

The chat will address the following questions.

  1. What are the benefits for both states and their citizens in building these exchanges?
  2. Are there any lessons learned from states that have implemented or are in the process of implementing an exchange? 
  3. What are the technical challenges the states face in implementing HIXs? 
  4. How different will the HIXs be across states? 
  5. How can states maximize the cost benefits of implementing these HIXs? 
  6. What are some of the innovative approaches to these exchanges?

We hope to see you there!
