How was the concept of Tempus Technology created?
Eric Lefkofsky stated that the idea for this company came after a close member of his family was diagnosed with cancer and was shocked that doctors had no communication in terms of data sharing and access to the same technology that other doctors had. This absence of available resources evidently was the reason for the founding of Tempus.
