Eric Lefkofsky is one of the most successful entrepreneurs that the country has ever seen. He already has three companies that have gone public, namely Echo Global Logistics, Groupon and InnerWorkings. After the success of his e-commerce company, he is interested in doing something in the health industry. He understood that there was a big gap between technology advancement and the health industry and wants to bring them both together to strengthen the industry. Even though big data has already been used in many different industries, its usage in the health industry is quite small. He wants to change this by developing Tempus. Tempus is a company that will compile genomic data to allow doctors to provide personalised treatment therapy depending on the condition of the patient.
Eric Lefkofsky was one of the founding members of the company and has been with the company since 2015. It was him who had the idea about the company and him along with other members brought it to life through Tempus. In a small amount of time the company has managed to draw the attention of the top most doctors and physicians as they feel it this big data company will allow them to find information quickly which is often important for them in treating their patients. They not only collect the data but have computer engineers who write algorithms to be able to analyze this data in an in-depth manner. Many health departments of institutions and hospitals have already formed a partnership with them, and they share their data with the company that can be used by them later on.
