There are many people who require cancer treatment in the United States. Almost everyone knows someone who has suffered or is suffering from cancer. The figure of the people suffering from cancer keeps going up annually. Nevertheless, there is hope from tremendous advancements that have been made by companies such as Tempus.
Healthcare is gradually taking positive strides thanks to the emergence and growth of electronic health records, commonly referred to as EHRs. Eric Lefkofsky is the co-founder of Tempus. He never had firsthand experience with cancer treatment until his wife was diagnosed with the disease. What shocked him the most is the vacuum that exists in this field in terms of digital technology. Although a wide scope of information is collected about the history of the patient’s medical history, it seems to be underutilized in terms of treatment. This is where Tempus majors in to make better the way cancer care is administered through its platform that analyses the patient’s molecular as well as clinical data. The company strived to provide an analytics software that would offer accessible and affordable clinical as well as medical data. Tempus has gradually grown to what it is today. As the information is updated continuously, thanks to the software, doctors are able to make informed decisions regarding the care and cure for cancer as well as other diseases.
