Eric Lefkofsky co-founded the company, Tempus. Tempus is involved in the improvement of cancer care. Through the use of new technology, the company has been able to streamline the process by which cancer care is delivered. With the creation of Tempus, cancer care has improved. Tempus is involved in something called, “data-enabled precision medicine”. Lefkofsky’s own, up-close-and-personal, experience with respect to cancer lead him to develop the company Tempus, with their innovative technology. When his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, he sought a solution to her care in the form of a response to lagging technology: in terms of data collection and digital technology.
There is a large amount of digital information generated in the cancer treatment process, but without a way to streamline in, process it, and make it understandable on a digital scale, cancer treatment was not what it could be before Tempus. Thus, Tempus developed a software that includes natural language processing and optical character recognition abilities to better process electronic records. There was plenty of data for cancer care, but, as stated previously, the ability to synthesize it and make it comprehensible to treating doctors was not there. This is what the software accomplished and more information click here.
The company also developed a better way to analyze patients’ clinical and molecular data. Along with the revolution Tempus created in terms of the analysis of electronic records, this analysis of patient data lead to a successful company. Tempus is also dedicated to reducing the price related to the storing of genetic information.
