BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland’s information technology secretary says the state will be testing how well its revamped health exchange website can handle thousands of users over different periods of time.

Isabel FitzGerald gave an update on Tuesday about how work is going. The state has incorporated new technology from Connecticut to revamp the website, which crashed on the day it opened last year.

FitzGerald says endurance tests will be run on the system to check how it operates under high loads for long periods. She also says the state will be testing how well the system works under complex scenarios, such as for accommodating different needs for different households.

The new website is set to open for people to browse on Nov. 9. People are scheduled to be able to enroll Nov. 15.
