The disastrous rollout of the Obama administration’s storefront for buying health coverage is now in a new phase — a slow recovery. But the questions about how something like this could happen and how a $600 billion technological failure can be prevented in the future made for dozens — dozens — of stories over the past two and a half months.

Special thanks to our West Coast-based producer, Cindy Carpien, for pulling this all together.
