There will have to be a complete rewrite--from scratch.  With people who actually know what they are doing.  And that will not happen.  Thank goodness.

I know this is a silly question but shouldn't it have been fixed before it was launched?

It can't be fixed, because it has a flawed structure at its very root.  It can only be redone by competent software engineers--and that ain't gonna happen.  Because the goal is single payer and this POS (which is not even a Beta version) was designed to fail and generate mass frustration.

Wish I could disagree with you. Put it down to incompetence and low bidders.

Can't. It is too perfectly bad to be anything other than deliberate.

Low bidders? At $630 million? Sweet heavens, I would love to see the other bids, assuming there really were any.

Come on - $630 million? That will buy you two concept fighters and a dozen hammers.
