Two US hospital chains dismiss Obamacare technical woes

Reuters, November 6, 2013

"If any company had three years' notice about having a website functioning for a major product launch on October 1, it would have worked. It's frustrating that it did not work," hospital operator Tenet Healthcare Corp's Chief Executive Trevor Fetter said in an interview with Reuters following the company's third-quarter earnings conference call.
