The company makes it possible for the physicians to offer personalized care for the cancer patients through the interactive analytical learning platform that it provides. Tempus offers genomic sequencing services to the patients. It also analyzes therapeutic and molecular data to empower the physicians and make instantaneous data-driven assessments.The organizational goal of this company is that each patient should be able to benefit from the treatment of the previous patients by availing to the physician, tools that help them learn as they gather more information.

Lefkofsky recently stated that plans are underway to bring in more software engineers, computational biologists as well as other employees into this company to help it achieve its goals.
The office offices of Tempus include among other the genomic sequencing laboratory that can handle more than 50,000 patients every year. This lab is CLIA-certified and highly robotic so that it is optimized to attain a high throughput next-generation sequencing. Sequencing at Tempus takes three weeks maximum after the patient samples are received.In the year 2006, Eric Lefkofsky together with his wife initiated the Lefkofsky Family Foundation. This is a charitable foundation meant to boost the various high impact initiatives that that work to improve the lives within the community.
