It is apparently clear from all the data available that health cost has been on an upward trajectory. There are many reasons put forward to justify this, and cancer has been on the top. Some of these ideas attributed to the aged population that is often getting sick and having terminal diseases and conditions that need long-term care. A good example, diabetes, back, neck and joint pains, general poor health among many others.
Apart from the aging population, the drugs have also become expensive with time. With the current trends where patients are spending less in hospitals, the pharmaceuticals have tried to offset the deficient made from fewer patients in hospitals by selling drugs to patients directly at a higher cost. It Has also contributed to the rising costs.
However, a philanthropist and entrepreneur, Erick Lefkofsky, the co-founder of the Tempus as come up with a solution to dealing with the rising cost of cancer treatment. Tempus is a technology company that is working towards building the world’s most extensive library and database for molecular and clinical data for the cancer epidemic. They are also coming up with an operating system that will make the data accessible by medics so it can be useful in the fight against cancer.
The system is on course, developed by a group of engineers and medical professions that will help in making the system more interactive and self-learning of input data. It will also be able to provide critical information and real-time data to the physician to be able to make a data-driven decision toward the treatment of cancers around the world. In his vision, Eric Lefkofsky envisioned that there would be easy for those suffering to get relief with better and quality health care within their reach cost-effectively.
It Will help reduce the cost of cancer treatment since the patient does not have to incur expenses traveling around for consultations, they will have data readily available at their health centers. It Will also cut costs and improve the research being carried on towards a common goal of finding the best therapy or cure to specific cancers that are affecting people.
