Advancing

COTA customers have unique access to our deeply curated and continually growing database of deidentified and contemporaneous patient data across 14 cancer types, with expansion to 5 additional cancer types by the end of the year. Our partners can leverage the individual datasets on an ad-hoc basis, and additionally explore broader access as a member of our newly-formed COTA Research Consortium — a cooperative network of NCI-designated Cancer Centers. As a member of the Research Consortium, centers will partner to develop research protocols to further advance the knowledge, understanding and use of RWD.

COTA Featured in OncLive – Data Analytics Making Inroads Into Oncology Practices

Around this growing interest and adoption, COTA’s chief medical officer, Dr. C.K. Wang, recently spoke with OncLive about how COTA’s Real World Analytics platform helps cancer centers correlate care patterns with outcomes.
"In my opinion, COTA now has what is the single best analytic tool in the market for monitoring practice patterns and quality in oncology."
"Working with COTA has enabled us to have clear and accurate access to understanding patterns of patient care faster than we've ever had."
“Proving your value as a provider is a matter of wedding your outcomes and costs. Through our work with COTA, we're closer to being able to do this than we ever have been before."
"The goal is to standardize care. Standardization is essential to patient safety and the control of costs. COTA's unique capabilities and partnership model enable us, for the first time, to monitor this standardization efficiently."

Getting

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.

Let’s work together to transform cancer care.
