Eric Lefkofsky is trying to find a cure for the medical industry’s problem with how patients’ information is stored and accessed with Tempus. Lefkofsky co-founded the company that created an operating system that is focused on enabling data-driven medicine. Most people don’t ever think about how their medical data is handled until they or a loved one becomes ill, which is exactly what happened when Eric Lefkofsky’s wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. He observed how much information was actually missing or difficult to access that he believed should have been an integral part of his wife’s care.
Not only does Eric Lefkofsky aim to make the data already collected organized and readily available, it also aims to make more currently obscure data like an individual’s complete genetic makeup an orthodox part of patient care. Originally costing more than $100 million when introduced in 2003, the price point has fallen drastically to just around $5,000 and continues to drop thanks to companies like Tempus. Being able to see a patient’s genetic makeup not only makes it easier for doctors and their associates to find treatments suitable for each individual patient, it can also help prevent disease by informing them what they are genetically predisposed to.
Eric Lefkofsky also co-founded Groupon and Lightbank, a company that invests in disruptive technology, along with his work with Tempus. He stepped down from his position of CEO at Groupon to focus on Tempus. Lefkofsky holds the position of adjunct professor at the University of Chicago.
His philanthropic work is as impressive as his success in business. Lefkofsky and his wife created the Lefkofsky Family Foundation in 2006, which is a private charity with the objective to serve those who live in Chicago and surrounding areas. He has also donated millions to various organizations with a focus on cancer research and treatment. Lefkofsky is so focused on giving that he and his wife joined the Giving Pledge and have vowed to donate at least half of their assets to charity within their lifetimes.
