Tempus, a company that specializes in offering data management and analytical solutions to healthcare institutions recently entered into a deal with CancerLinQ and Precision HealthAI. CancerLinQ is a company that provides healthcare solutions to patients who have been diagnosed with cancer. As part of the treatments that they put forward, they also have to keep track of all their patients who come to them. However, the system that they were using before the agreement put into place was not as efficient as it needed to be. Tempus is now helping CancerLinQ with the development of these databases so that they can adequately store patient information, and at the same time be able to analyze them on a much better level. The new system will make the entire processes that CancerLinQ is involved with a lot more efficient, thereby allowing for a smoother workflow at the company.
CancerLinQ decided to approach Tempus after realizing that the data that they were receiving needed to be put into a more articulate form. Because of the millions of patients that they have registered with them, the company would be able to provide a viable database which allows researchers to study the various aspects of cancer. Researchers can then use this kind of information to supplement their research, and benefit the people who are diagnosed with this disease. This kind of proper database management can also aid companies who are on the lookout for data to help them with their drug and pharmaceutical studies. The three companies working together will truly be able to make a difference on a big scale to the way the data that they have is managed. The companies have good synergy working with one another, which is something that has aided their progress significantly.
Since the company was first founded, Tempus has managed to make brilliant innovations in the field of medicine and medical analysis. The company was founded by Eric Lefkofsky, who believed that change needed to be made to the data storage techniques which were being used. He saw the drawbacks of the old systems while he was overseeing the treatment of a loved one who was diagnosed with cancer. He knew that changes needed to be made for the benefit of the patients who are seeking treatments. He realized that if data were stored more efficiently, doctors and surgeons would be able to analyze better the things that patients needed for a better recovery. Tempus made this entire process extremely easy for doctors and surgeons, thereby being a big service to the medical industry. The company first opened its doors for business and today has tie-ups with several big health care facilities and cancer treatment centers.
Eric Lefkofsky had never envisioned getting himself into the healthcare industry. He was a well-known name in the field of IT and was known for leading some of the most prominent companies in that field. Before Tempus, he had been a part of several other successful ventures. Tempus propelled him into the healthcare industry, making him a well-known name therein as well.
Eric Lefkofsky attained his undergraduate and postgraduate from the University of Michigan. Currently, Eric Lefkofsky resides in Chicago, which is where the main headquarters of Tempus is also located. In addition to running the company, Eric Lefkofsky is also known for being an incredibly philanthropic person. He and his wife together founded the Lefkofsky Family Foundation. The foundation has been able to provide aid to people all over the country and has also tied up with numerous other organizations to help them achieve their charitable goals.
