He went to work with IBM when he was just 20 years old but ended up changing careers when he met Carlos Vicente Ceriarchi. The businessman had many ideas about helping to expand the tourism sector in Brazil, and he figured Paulus could help him.

The Chief Executive Officer of Tempus, Eric Lefkofsky was recently featured in Bloomberg interview and he talked about data-driven medicine. In a nutshell, this is what he had to say.
Mining medical records
Mr. Eric Lefkofsky said that technology is being used in the healthcare sector to mine medical data for individual patients. Technology has come to simplify how patient information is stored and retrieved. Since time immemorial, storage of medical records has been a challenge. The challenge not only affects medical practitioners, but also patients. Data-driven medicine came to salvage the situation. As much as it may seem like a demanding endeavor, many platforms are available that offers the information just the way established tech companies stores their customers or employees data. It is difficult to capture the information of all sequencing cancer patients for example without the use of technology. It is even worse because doctors may rely on inaccurate information to inform treatment. This is part of the reasons mining data at the internet scale is important. It is easy to store and retrieve large-scale electronic records. Medical practitioners are able to access patients’ information without necessarily meeting them. The data is available with a press of a button.
How will it affect healthcare costs?
Eric Lefkofsky made it clear the focus is on improving efficiency in the provision of medical care. Data-driven medicine will make it easy for medical practitioners to access information and ultimately, the benefits will surpass the costs. This technology will prolong lives through increase in efficiency. The ultimate result of full implementation of the technology is high quality of health services and reduced healthcare costs in the long-run.
Any ethical issues?
The interviewer was concerned about possible misuse of information availed by the technology. He replied by saying in as much as security issues is a challenge to each industry, his company is committed to provide programs that will counter threats.

Despite suffering economic recession for three years in a row, this seems to be a promising decade for Brazil. So many things, including the 2014 world cup, Olympics games, and the discovery of petroleum in the oceanic pre-salt layer all happened this year. These developments have had a positive impact on the country. Many international corporations, investors and governments now want to invest in the country. Generally, the outlook is positive but it pokes wounds on the country’s federal government on how it can provide sufficient tax incentives/relief to create a favorable environment for businesses. The aim is to provide good tax incentives and reliefs but at the same time foster the economic, social and cultural development in the country. Maintaining a balance in all these demands is challenging for the Brazilian government.
But according to Flavio Maluf, the president of Eucatex, businesspeople and companies now have a reason to smile. The government recently presented the proposed Fiscal law Incentives. Through the proposed tax laws, companies now have an opportunity to choose where they spend their taxes. The law gives them an opportunity to choose a project in the areas of social, economic, science and research or cultural project that they can support.
Thus, instead of paying certain taxes directly to the government, companies can now channels the monies to these projects. The good thing is that the projects will bear the companies names thus helping them in building their public image. On the other hand, the government will benefit by encouraging development in the country.
However, Flavio Maluf continues to note that the new law doesn’t open a window for companies to avoid paying taxes. The government will closely monitor the projects that companies support and how they spend their money. Flavio Maluf also notes that companies can take advantage of other regional tax incentives depending on the areas where they operate.
About Flavio Maluf

He pursued a degree in mechanical engineering but his passion for entrepreneurship forced him to become a full-time businessman.
