Eric Lefkofsky Uses Collaboration To Improve Cancer Care In America

Tempus, Inc. is a technology firm focused on healthcare that is based in Chicago, Illinois. They collect and analyze both clinical and molecular data and analyze genomic sequencing data in their lab taken from cancer seeking treatment. The Tempus platform presents this data to their doctors who use it to make the best decisions about what treatment paths to follow.This company was co-founded by Eric Lefkofsky who also leads it as its CEO. He says that his company is bringing cutting-edge technology to the field of healthcare, something that he saw was distinctly lacking when presented with an up-close view of how cancer was being treated.

His technology is being used to treat one in four cancer patients in the U.S. and could be used in other nations as well in the not so distant future.Eric Lefkosfky collaborates with others to improve the state of healthcare in the United States, forming partnerships with hundreds of hospitals and clinics. In October 2018 he started a collaborative partnership with Mary Crowley Research. Their goal is to develop more research options for people with lung cancer. Mary Crowley Cancer Research will use Tempus as their preferred provider when a molecular sequencing needs to be performed as well as providing clinical support and analysis.

He is one of the most influential entrepreneurs in Chicago. Eric Lefkofsky had co-founded several technology firms there including Groupon, Echo Global Logistics, Lighbank, and InnerWorkings. He helps the Chicago community as a business philanthropist by supporting many causes. He is the trustee for Lurie Children’s Hospital as well as World Business Chicago, The Museum of Science and Industry, and the Art Institute of Chicago. He and his wife have also signed the Giving Pledge and so have committed to philanthropically giving half of their wealth to various important causes.

Find the Core of the Problems: Neurocore

Find the Core of the Problems: Neurocore

Today’s world is bombarded with stressors that affect our most essential function: the ability to reason. Anxiety, depression, ADHD, and other psychological conditions may be the result of overstimulation, or under usage of neurotherapy. Neurocore is an organization dedicated to creating a revolution of neurotherapy. Neurotherapy uses electrical measurements, driven by brain activity, creating a condition of unwanted brain activity.

Since the inception of Neurocore in 2004, the organization has achieved the status of being a central authority in neuroscience. There are eight brain centers in Michigan and Florida, where processes such as EEG, qEEG, and neurofeedback is used to rectify problems with mental clarity and acuity, sleep disorders and stress management.

Innovation is key to Neurocore’s strategy, and the use of biofeedback, or heart rate variability, is a clear example of how Neurocore is helping to change the perspective on neurotherapy. Heart rate variability, or HRV training, takes the subconscious retraining of the brain with regulating mindful breathing patterns through therapeutic breathing. Through this synergy of methods, the patient enhances their mind and body connection.

As an example of an organization attempting to develop their acumen, the Portland Trail Blazers recently utilized Neurocore, adding a “brain room” to their training facilities. This innovative technology provides the opportunity to improve and train the overall function of the brain, endocrine, cardiovascular and respiratory systems through focus on the stress level, recovery and relaxation of the participant.

The next step in psychological and neurotherapy is Neurocore through the development and strategic use of their brain centers. People who feel as if their minds and bodies are being stretched to the limit can find solace in knowing the brain centers exist to help them regain their bio-neurological balance. As Neurocore expands and becomes a mainstay in neurotherapy, people will succeed at isolating and resolving the true “core” of issues affecting their ability to be productive and satisfied with their lives.
