Eric Lefkofsky and Tempus Labs – Gaining Traction as a Successful Startup

According to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune, Tempus Labs, a biotech laboratory co-founded by Eric Lefkofsky, has increased its valuation to more than $1.1 billion. This boost in assets for Tempus Labs is the result of a recent investment of $80 million in additional funding. Since 2015, the total investments for Tempus Labs is approximately $210 million.

The co-founder of Tempus Labs is Eric Lefkofsky who earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and his JD from the University of Michigan Law School. With an entrepreneurial spirit, Lefkofsky’s area of expertise is “turning conventional businesses into e-enabled businesses with technology serving as a catalyst to revolutionize business programs.” It is his entrepreneurial spirit and penchant for technology that led to the co-founding of Tempus Labs, a biotech company that developed an operating system that enables the individualization of patient care. Tempus Labs developed a library of both molecular and clinical data housed in an operating system that makes genomic information and clinical patient information readily available and accessible to physicians. The goal is to facilitate the personalization of cancer care with a searchable database.

Tempus Labs because of its valuation at more than $1 billion is dubbed a “unicorn.” Just as a unicorn is rare and distinctive, so too is Tempus Labs, a successful startup in the midst of many startups that fail within four years. Aileen Lee, a venture capitalist, to identify startups with a valuation more than $1 billion, coined the term “unicorn” to identify successful startups. In speaking about the success of Tempus Labs, Eric Lefkofsky stated, “I think the traction we have had with everybody in the industry has been kind of amazing. We’re in the midst of one of the most significant paradigm shifts of our time.”

It is the vote of confidence from investors who support the mission and vision of Eric Lefkofsky and Tempus Labs, investors like New Enterprise Associates and Revolution Growth, that has led to the success of Eric Lefkofsky and Tempus Labs.

How to Prepare for A Lifeline Screening

Lifeline screenings consist of carotid artery disease, (stroke), atrial fibrillation which is also a stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysm, peripheral arterial disease, elevated C-reactive protein, lipid panel, type 2 diabetes glucose test, and elevated liver enzymes. For carotid artery disease it is recommended that you wear a shirt open at the collar. Consequently, the atrial fibrillation exam requires wearing a two-piece outfit made up of loose clothing, wearing no underwear, taking off your watch, turning off your cell phone and not wearing lotion or oil.

In regards to the abdominal aortic aneurysm and ankle-brachial index or peripheral arterial disease, one should wear a two-piece, loose outfit. You need to fast four hours prior to the screening. The meal must be a light meal ½ of what you ordinarily eat of food that does not give you gas. You can drink a moderate amount of water or ½ cup coffee or tea. Diabetics can have a meal consisting of toast, and juice. For a glucose test, you must fast 8 hours before the test. Another test that requires wearing no underwear is the bone mineral density test for osteoporosis risk. For the lipid panel, it is recommended to fast 9 hours before the test. Lung cancer screenings are conducted to see if there are risk factors for that particular form of cancer. Risk factors include a family history of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke or congestive heart failure, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), or lung cancer itself. For a type 2 diabetes glucose tolerance test, you should fast 8 hours prior to the test.

With the C-reactive test and the elevated liver enzymes test (ALT/AST), there is nothing you need to do in advance. There is also a 6 for life package test where you fast for 8 hours prior to the screening for accurate results. You need to wear a short-sleeved shirt or a shirt with sleeves that are easy to roll up for blood pressure cuffs. Screenings like these take at least an hour including several minutes of paperwork. Lifeline screening is accurate compared to results received in accredited vascular labs, taken care of by skilled sonographers. Lifeline also conducts continuous research with various medical institutions. Lifeline provides reliable machines that do the tests mentioned above.

Renown Health in South Reno

Summit Hall in South Reno will be opening a new family practice clinic this Spring. Renown Health provides primary care services and a laboratory that holds the potential to offer more services in the future. Dr. McCormack, medical director of Renown Medical claims that the clinic was also produced to offer a more comfortable and inviting setting for patients seeking it’s services. He claims that the practice aims to make the environment resemble and have the atmosphere resembling their own personal living room.

Additional features have been discussed by Renown, but Dr. McCormack states that what they seek to add later on depends on the ever changing healthcare market. The uncertainty of the healthcare industry under Donald Trump’s administration creates a bit of mystery for the practice going forward.

With the staff currently only employing 11 people, it will look to add at least one more physician in to the mix and one more nurse practicioner. The facility covers over three store fronts and stretches out over 10,000 square feet. The architecture and design of the building was left to Eric Fong of MBA Architects. The general contractor for the building was a Carson City based business dubbed Shaheen Beauchamp Builders LLC. The structural engineering was handled by Forbes Engineering and mechanical, plumbing, and electrical engineering was handled by MSA Engineering Consultants. All companies with the exception of Shaheen are Reno Nevada based. It is reported that at least a dozen local contractors were called upon to produce the medical facility.

McCormack states that the growing community, improved economy and greater access to health insurance facilities necessitates the need for more clinics in the region, specifically the South Meadows area. Renown currently has 12 primary care clinics throughout Reno, Carson City, Fallon and Fernley. They have also as of recent opened a clinic in the Caughlin Ranch area.
