Eric Lefkofsky’s latest efforts in business following his academic background is Tempus.

The foundation of Tempus lies in analytics software that will allow the company to compile that vast amounts of loose data around the world in healthcare service and cancer. Eric Lefkofsky says that the disorganization of data in the healthcare industry is massive and leaves treatments, especially related to cancer, to generalized for each patient.

When it comes to the world of technology, things are always advancing. The same thing can be said of the healthcare industry.

Eric Lefkofsky is creating a solution for that problem through Tempus alongside Co-founder Brad Keywell. As Tempus continues to compile data from the field of healthcare around the world, the healthcare practice as a whole will be aided with more specific and accurate data for treatments.
