healthcaregovExperts from Google and other prominent tech companies are joining a so-called tech surge to fix the struggling website. The agency overseeing the Obamacare site announced the additions Thursday, after the site had crashed for over 36 hours. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the surge includes “dozens” of people with expertise in the site’s key issues: reliability, stability, and large-scale operations. Besides government employees, the surge includes employees from Google, as well as employees of software giants Red Hat, and Oracle.
