The cash raised in addition to the 130 million US dollars that he helped create, will increase the net worth of Tempus to around $700 million. To answer the question asked by many people regarding his new interest in health care, Eric says he was motivated after he oversaw the lack of the right facilities to treat cancer patients during the diagnosis of a loved one. Tempus combines the use of technology to put together all the clinical data of each patient. Through this, doctors will have access to first-hand information regarding each patient hence creating a more personalized treatment.
