HealthCare.gov has reported traffic hovering around one million visitors per day this week.

The numbers suggest rapid improvement in the site's performance, but the administration is still likely trailing its earlier enrollment targets. The White House had aimed for 500,000 sign-ups in October (the actual total was 100,000 when state-based marketplaces were included) and 3.3 million by Dec. 31.

The administration's confidence that the site is fixed has ignited a widespread outreach campaign over the next three weeks to enroll people in coverage.

Enrollment data for November are expected to be released by the middle of December.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
