Anyone who has ever fought cancer understands the importance of making advances in treating the disease. When Eric Lefkofsky co-founded Tempus precision medicine enabled through data started to become a reality. Modern technology was left behind until the day his wife received a diagnosis of breast cancer. This was his first experience with cancer and he was shocked by the absence of digital technology and the collection of data. He knew he had to find a way to streamline and correlate the data so it could be used effectively. This led him to Tempus with his goal to change the way cancer care is administered.
Tempus developed a platform so a cancer patient’s data could be analyzed. Once the software was developed there was an issue with the medical and clinical data required. There was no organization to the data and a lot of it consisted of notes made by doctors.

This data has the capability of advancing the care and treatment of cancer and learn more about Eric.
