COTA was recognized for its achievements in the Google Cloud ecosystem and is building a series of new AI and natural language processing (NLP) models tailored to unstructured oncology data. The ultimate goal of this work is to ensure that all patients receive high quality care regardless of who they are or where they live. These models will help COTA and its customers achieve faster, easier and better understanding of what is happening in the cancer care setting and how a patient’s clinical history may impact their response to treatment.

“Real-world data is key to unlocking insights that can improve individual patient outcomes across the entire healthcare ecosystem. With AI, we can dramatically accelerate the process of creating high quality data responsibly so that we can uncover disparities and improve cancer treatment,” Miruna Sasu, President and CEO, COTA. “Our partnership with Google Cloud is vital in helping advance this important work.”

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Award

In an era when technology and data are reshaping the world, customers who won the DEI Customer Awards distinguished themselves for their commitment to using cloud tools to promote economic mobility and representation for historically underrepresented communities. The winning organizations, and their partners, are leveraging the power of data and AI to transform and strengthen representation, progression, retention, and the inclusion of underserved or underrepresented groups in their organizations. By making a difference to their communities, they’re also leading the way for other organizations to drive for a more equitable world.

Healthcare & Life Sciences Award

Healthcare is a sector that creates extraordinary levels of innovation, and our Healthcare & Live Sciences Customer Award winner showed how far it can push scientific boundaries. COTA is working with Google Cloud to transform the raw, unstructured data in electronic health records into a usable format that is driving a new era of data-driven cancer care. Google Cloud is proud to partner with COTA, who is saving lives by speeding up medical breakthroughs.
