For the past decade, Eric Lefkofsky has been making a name for himself in the world of technology. As the co-founder of one of the most important business applications in the past several years, Groupon, Lefkofsky managed to make a name for himself. Now, Lefkofsky is focused on making a difference in an entirely new field. Just two years ago, Lefkofsky co-founded the company Tempus. As the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Tempus, he is dedicated to finding ways to improve the data utilization for cancer care patients and doctors. Let’s go ahead and learn a little bit about Lefkofsky’s new business and what it may end up meaning to the medical world.
As someone who was exposed to the world of cancer care through a personal relationship, Lefkofsky quickly came to the realization that there were no large-scale modern tech companies working to ingratiate cancer care data into a singular system for maximum efficiency. After realizing how disorganized information was in this particular sector, Lefkofsky knew that he could step up and make a difference himself. As a master with data flow, Lefkofsky quickly put together a team in order to make Tempus reality. So, what is Tempus and what will it be doing?
Tempus will be operating much like a digital O.S. that will allow doctors and cancer care patients to access the vital information that they need, whenever it is that they need it. Tempus will work with cancer care data and molecular data in order to port it into an accessible system. The goal here is to make it easier than ever for doctors and patients to analyze data in order to find the right course of action for their cancer care. With no two people responding exactly the same to treatment, it is vital that this kind of information is made known to as many people as possible.
Right now, Tempus hosts more than 400 employees on their roster. Tempus is growing by leaps and bounds and recently hit a valuation of over $1 billion dollars. With this kind of surging growth, Tempus is clearly here to stay.
