The Chicago-based company, Tempus, specializes in the collection and analysis of molecular and clinical data. Tempus recently launched an app called Tempus Labs which allows doctors to have access to all of their patient’s pertinent information as soon as they need it. This includes viewing the patient clinical history, potential therapy options, and eligible clinical trials. All physicians across the nation can have access to it by ordering a Tempus product. The Tempus designing team designed the app based on conversations with doctors.
Tempus Labs will not only make getting information easier and speedier for physicians, it will also make for much better treatments for patients. In August of this year, Tempus reported its funding at $110 million. These substantial funds will help Tempus broaden out into further medical areas. In December it announced a project called Tempus O, an innovation designed to structure, cleanse, and annotate clinical data. Tempus was founded by Eric Lefkofsky who currently serves as its CEO. Lefkoftsky and his wife also co-chair the Lefkofsky Family Foundation.

Lefkoftsky is also a co-founder and current chairman of Groupon. He has previously held leadership positions with Mediaocean and Echo Global Logistics. He worked at this latter company until 2016.
