In October 2018, Tempus Inc. released Tempus Labs, a medical app that could help doctors to access their patients’ clinical information quickly and securely. The announcement came a few weeks after the company publicized that they had raised $110 million from their series E fundraiser.
Doctors can download the Tempus Labs mobile app from Google Play or APP store. On the other hand, Tempus Incorporation gives the app as a bonus to doctors who purchase its xT, xO, and xE validated assays used in the diagnosis of cancer.
The mobile app can generate the patients’ clinical information, and it can propose the various clinical trials which the patient is eligible. Tempus Incorporation’s chief operating officer said that the app could help physicians to access Tempus Inc.’s platform from any location.
In particular, the app was more important for those doctors who were too busy to access Tempus’ platform using a computer. Tempus’ chief operating officer added that the ease of access to a patient’s critical clinical information would help the doctors make sound treatment judgments.
Apart from the mobile app, Tempus Inc.’s management confirmed that they had raised $110 million from their August 2018 fundraiser. They planned to use the funds in improving their operations, as well as extending their capabilities to new medical research areas.
