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.
