The Story of Tempus
The U.S is facing increasing challenges today with their health, and one of those health concerns is cancer care and research. With more adults facing cancer diagnosis today, it’s good to know that the medical advancement in cancer research is catching up. This medical progress is possible thanks mostly to companies like Tempus, who is founded by Eric Lefkosky.
The story behind Eric Lefkosky’s involvement in cancer research started when doctors diagnosed his wife with breast cancer. He found out that there were gaping holes that exist regarding collecting and organizing cancer data for digital technology. Despite the ominous amount of data from patients, Eric realized that there was still no efficient and more streamlined way to corral all that information to make practical use of it and what Eric Lefkosky knows.
The vision of Tempus was simple but impressive: it was to transform how doctors deliver the basics of cancer diagnosis and care. Eric co-founded the company to make sure that they can develop a platform for doctors and research to analyze the patient’s clinical data and molecular facts and display all this in an accessible and affordable way.
The vision of Eric is also to put data-enabled precision medicine at the forefront of cancer studies in the future. He hopes the Tempus platform can determine which drugs, treatments and clinical tests needed for doctors to make more informed decisions in real time not only for cancer but other countless conditions and diseases as well and Eric’s lacrosse camp.
Eric Lefkosky was able to make Tempus as one of the global industry‘s leading company in charge of data-enabled precision in quality medicine. Right now Tempus is making sure that the authorities deliver the latest development and technology in modern science to everyone who needs it.
