It was recently reported that Tempus and the amazing advances from such companies are making the prognosis of cancer among US citizens look better. Tempus is the leader of this transition in medicine that is data-enabled. And it all began when the co-founder of Tempus, Eric Lefkofsky discovered the huge gap in the medical field upon discovering his wife’s diagnosis of cancer. The huge gap is in terms of digital technology and data collection.
Tempus started with an impressive goal in mind which is to change the delivery of cancer care. This firm developed a platform which analyzes the molecular and clinical information of the patient. Also, even though this firm had the means for developing the software needed to reach this goal, they initially had an issue with affordable and accessible medical and clinical info. Another obstacle they had undergone is the way the collection and storage of critical data concerning cancer patients occurred. However, Tempus was eventually able to transform the most pertinent notes into structured data, and thus, the advancing of cancer care and treatment came to be.
Through Lefkofsky and his company, breakthroughs happened with the retrieving of genomic information, which is the gathering of human genome sequencing. And now, Tempus is promoting hard the human genome sequencing for more fighting against cancer. They are working for the better of mankind against cancer, and the way to do this is through more development of the human genome sequencing. With more information, many more breakthroughs will come to light to researchers fighting against this atrocity towards mankind.
