There is a lot of change going on in the medical industry recently when it comes to cancer and other diseases. Patients are going to benefit from more precise and personalized care that is recently being discovered.
Eric Lefkofsky is a part of this movement with one of the companies he Co-founded Tempus Labs in 2015. They take patient’s information and organize, consolidate, and then put it all in digital databases. This way doctors have a much easier time to use this data to treat patients in the future. They will also be able to use patient’s DNA so they can treat and diagnose them more efficiently and better. This is called precision medicine. It’s not a one size fits all treatment method, but a personalized and more precise treatment for each individual.
Tempus has become so successful that they have partnerships with academic institutions and organizations that are focused on cancer including most of the National Cancer Institute cancer centers. Tempus is listed on Chicago’s top ten health techs. Patients are referred by their oncologist to go to Tempus Labs for genomic sequencing. Not only cancer patients can benefit from this type of treatment, but also those who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and more importantly diagnosing it. It is often diagnosed too late. It is recognized by things such as brain changes throughout someone’s life.
