The Tech Guru: Dr. Gerard Burns

The Tech Guru: Dr. Gerard Burns: "Six years ago, Gerard A. Burns was as tech-phobic as any doctor. A trauma surgeon at Yale School of Medicine, he had his secretaries read him his e-mails while he was scrubbing up for surgery. So how did the 44-year-old become a key player in turning Hackensack into a leading e-hospital? He got bored. In 1999 he left for business school and ended up landing a job at a medical software company. When Hackensack in 2002 was looking for someone to get its 1,285 docs to adopt digital medicine, Burns jumped at the chance."
