Frequently-Asked Questions About Real-World Analytics

How do we derive value from disorganized data?

Our approach makes sense of all the relevant aspects of the patient journey from your medical records – data in physician notes, pathology, radiology, surgical reports, genomic testing results and to develop a longitudinal patient record and comprehensive picture of care.

COTA maintains a highly sophisticated and multidisciplinary data curation approach. Our methodology was developed by oncologists with input from a team of informaticists, cancer outcomes researchers, and biostatisticians with the goal of unlocking data from both structured and unstructured sources. All of our data curation efforts occur on the COTA Abstraction Platform (CAP), which is an internally developed and proprietary platform that enables COTA to leverage technology as we scale our curation efforts. Data elements are standardized across sources and ontologies to create a single, structured dataset that covers the full longitudinal history of a patient’s clinical care. COTA’s extensive quality control and audit process ensures the data can be readily transformed into fit-for-purpose research grade datasets and occurs at every step in the curation process, from the point of data entry all the way through to data delivery. Additionally, our process includes inter-rater reliability scoring prior to abstraction as well as programmatic controls which detect clinical improbability at data ingestion. COTA can curate on-demand, longitudinal histories of your patient population to meet the full range of research and operational improvement interests at your center.

Our easy-to-use data visualization tools display your data in the clearest, most impactful way. Data is also available in a variety of file formats to suit your preferences for additional data analysis.

Our data lets you look deeply at performance and outcomes across your provider organization, so you can identify variation and take action to improve care quality and outcomes.

Our numerical classification system clusters patients with clinically similar disease characteristics, so that you gain a clearer, fuller picture, and uncover insights that could impact treatment decisions and outcomes.
