Cerner builds recession-proof 'bunker' for health data
This is a story about data. Lots and lots of data. And not just any data. Extremely sensitive data. The U.S. health system is undergoing a major technological shift right now. Some equate it to finally catching up to where the banking and airline industries have been for years: Doctors and hospitals are moving to electronic health records systems, and it's not easy. Cerner, based in Kansas City, Mo., has grown into one of the nation's biggest players in the field of health information technology. Cerner's main headquarters seems like a college campus, peppered with trees and walking paths, along with some Star Trek-like architecture.
