An official at Harvard University is likely to get a key post running day-to-day operations of the Massachusetts Health Insurance Connector Authority. Rosemarie Day, currently the chief of staff for the dean of the Kennedy School of Government, is "very likely" to be named to the post, according to sources. The Connector is charged with implementing Gov. Mitt Romney's ambitious plan to transform the state's insurance industry by mandating individual coverage. That may make the position one of the most closely watched in healthcare this year, given the widespread interest in the experiment among employers and public health officials.
