Obama to Discuss Online Health Exchange and More with Tech Execs

Official White House Photo by Pete Souza(WASHINGTON) -- President Obama is scheduled to meet Tuesday with a number of tech executives at the White House to discuss the progress made in addressing performance and capacity issues with the federal online health care exchange, HealthCare.gov, and how the government can better deliver IT to maximize innovation, efficiency and customer service.

Executives scheduled to attend the meeting include Apple CEO Tim Cook, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer and Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt.

The White House says the meeting will also touch on national security and the economic impact of unauthorized intelligence disclosures.  The meeting comes one day after a federal judge ruled that the National Security Agency’s program of culling the phone records of millions of Americans may be unconstitutional.

The president will also discuss ways his administration “can partner with the tech sector to further grow the economy, create jobs and address issues around income inequality and social mobility,” according to the White House.
