Eric Lefkofsky runs a company that is focused on health care, innovation and utilization of technology – Tempest. Eric’s company is growing at a very impressive rate and is producing studies and research that will serve as the backbone and future of medical technology. Eric Lefkofsky has used his extensive experience and knowledge on decluttering and organizing data of different companies. Eric has brought technologies into different businesses and industries who weren’t utilizing them to their advantage.
Medicine, healthcare, and the procedures involved employ a lot of data and information, and Eric Lefkofsky was surprised on how little of the data and information stay in the system during medical procedure. Information and data that can be useful to other doctors and health professionals in helping and aiding them in their own medical cases. And so Eric Lefkofsky decided that he should bring the logistical technologies that other industries were utilizing into healthcare to be able to help patients and doctors alike.
Tempest was built 3 years ago to help organize the data infrastructure in the medical field – Eric first focused Tempest into cancer-related data, and ultimately takeover all of health care procedures. Eric Lefkofsky’s main problem was how to discern which data to put in from the medical procedures because it involves a lot of factors from the patient’s information and history, the drugs involved and the procedures they were undertaking. Eric and Tempest fixed this underlying data infrastructure and filtered clinical data and information to gather the most critical data and input it into the system of Tempest. When they begin to sequence the information that they gather from the patients and the doctors, Tempest helps aid doctors and patients alike to understand the situations and the data that they gather can also be used by other doctors who are encountering a similar medical case.
Eric is very popular for investing in a lot of industries and different businesses like media, and business services. Eric Lefkofsky is also well known for investing a million dollars into what we know now as Group On, one of the fastest growing start up company.
