Real-World Data at COTA

Patient health data is at the core of almost every healthcare technology innovation. Collected and stored across computers, mobile devices, wearables, and other technologies, this data, collectively, is called real-world data (RWD). This page serves as a library of how we see RWD driving value in the cancer space.

Why use Real-World Data?

At COTA, we curate regulatory-grade oncology RWD with the most relevance for our life sciences and provider partners, whether that involves supporting regulatory filings or research questions.  We cannot unlock the full value of RWD without the highest-quality collection and curation methodology, and we are powering a revolution in the development of new cancer therapies to bring clarity to cancer care.

 

How we define regulatory-grade data:

Provenance

  • COTA oversees the entire process from abstraction of raw data to final delivery of curated RWD
  • Traceability of all our data: where it originates, the transformations applied, and QA checks along the way

Relevance

  • The right cohorts after applying inclusion/exclusion criteria at the right volumes

  • Representativeness across real-world and clinical trial populations

  • Coverage across geographies of interest

Fidelity

  • Faithful representation of the original clinical data documented in EHR
  • Technology-enabled human abstraction leveraged to understand and capture clinical nuances
  • Accuracy of capture ensured through documented, multi-step QA/QC process

We have a responsibility to drive the use of RWD by consistently improving our data and demonstrating its utility. Our data has been used to support FDA and EMA submissions, explain care patterns, understand patient outcomes, and much more – and we anticipate the number of use cases to multiply in the coming years as RWD is explored and leveraged by more and more innovators in the industry.

COTA Descends on NYC for CAMP COTA

After two years, COTA was back together in NYC for an in-person all-hands meeting. As much as we have learned to adapt to the world of remote work, there is no substitute for the connection, collaboration, and energy that comes from physically being in the same space.
