Eric Lefkofsky and the Health System

Eric Lefkofsky is a graduate of the University of Michigan, an adjunct professor at the University of Chicago, and the Co-Founder and CEO of Tempus a company with the technology with an operating system to gather data to be more effective in the treatment for Cancer and other illnesses.

In fact, Eric Lefkofsky and his twenty years of experience in the advances of technology believes that the health system is lacking sufficient data and information to treat patients differently and personally, and depending on their medical history, their past diagnostics and the medications, could help doctors, researchers, and insurance companies to treat them better.

There is a lot of waste of time and money when missing a link to battle Cancer, the medical system has to depend on that critical and necessary information; clinical and molecular data have that platform to treat their patients with the facts and not only guessing from the pain.

In the mean time, Tempus has partnered with different Cancer Care Centers and Eric Lefkofsky intentions are to grow the Company and the operating system to other community hospitals, so each patient can get the health care they need and deserve, it doesn’t matter who or where you live.

The new technology of Tempus can minimize the waste and maximize the results when gathering correctly the molecular sequencing and mutations of each patient. Consequently, the patients and the doctors and everyone else will benefit with this operating system that Tempus is working to fight this battle against Cancer.

When you or someone you care and love is fighting this disease, you expect the best treatments because it is an illness that needs the best health system, a system that has to be at the top, and that is precisely what Eric Lefkofsky and Tempus wants, to be at the top to help and give real results in less time. For that reason, time is an important fact when you are fighting for your life.

Renown Health

Northern Nevada’s largest not-for-profit healthcare provider is opening up a clinic in South Reno. The Summit Mall is all set to host a new family practise clinic from Renown Health, which will provide primary healthcare services upon opening and and has the facilities to provide additional services in the future. These future plans could include things like a conference room so that staff can communicate with patients on healthcare matters, and otherwise there are a number of possibilities but the folks at Renown want to wait and see what the future of the healthcare industry holds before committing to additional services – the potential repeal of the ACA could disrupt the US healthcare industry, and not necessarily in a good way. The space itself was designed to provide a comfortable setting that’s imitative of a home living room, so that customers can walk in and feel completely comfortable in it. Spread over three formerly vacant storefronts in the mall, the 10,000 foot clinic will start out with eleven staff members, but Renown is looking for one more physician and one more nurse practitioner for the facility so that it can better serve patients’ needs.

With twelve healthcare clinics throughout northwestern Nevada, Renown is becoming a regional leader in primary healthcare clinics and they’ve recently opened another primary care clinic in the Caughlin Ranch area as well. As Reno’s only not-for-profit, locally-governed healthcare provider, Renown Health ensures that all of its earnings stay local so that they can be put towards important things like investing in their programs and services rather than going somewhere else or lining the administration’s pockets. This puts them in a unique position to fully serve the local community rather than using profits as a primary motivation – great news for the local community, since accessing quality healthcare is an important need that often goes unfulfilled.
