Created by the Massachusetts health care overhaul in 2006, the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority — better known as the Health Connector — was the first state online health insurance marketplace.

Jean Yang, 41, who became the Health Connector’s executive director in January, is preparing for “Connector 2.0,” with more plan choices and an easier-to-use shopping experience. She spoke with Globe reporter Robert Weisman on a visit to the newspaper last week.
