(AP) President Barack Obama's new health chief is revamping the administration's management of the health care overhaul, aiming to improve accountability and prevent another round of insurance chaos this fall.


Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell announced Friday that she has appointed a new high-level operations manager, responsible for delivering results across critical programs.


She's also hiring a chief executive specifically for the health care overhaul.


Although the administration eventually managed to sign up 8 million people for new coverage, last fall's rollout of HealthCare.gov was paralyzed by technology problems that turned into a major embarrassment for the White House.


The new operations manager is Andy Slavitt, a senior executive of a health care technology company, who as a contractor worked to help straighten out the government's website woes.
