Tempus is integral to the collection and analysis of data on up to 1000 cancer patient due to the fact that there is little to no access to information on the people who have suffered under the disease. This is an alarming statistic because breast cancer is one of the widely spread forms of cancer and lack of the data translates to the doctors giving treatment without the aid of patient information. The impact that Tempus makes to this is that this data they collect will be sufficient in enhancing the treatment development project.The initiative that has been undertaken by Tempus will propel the creation of one of the broadest clinically based database. Tempus has combined efforts with the Mayo Clinic, University of Michigan and the Rush University Medical Center among others Eric Lefkofsky founded the Lefkofsky Family Foundation as part of his philanthropic ventures to help bring about dynamic changes to people it assists.
