The CNA System is a unique, patented method for classifying all patient factors, their diseases, and intended therapies into a digital code that embodies all relevant clinical factors. It ensures that all patients who are medically identical are given the same Cota Nodal Address™, and should thus have similar treatments and outcomes.
This revolutionary approach to precisely classifying and cohorting patient data is an integral part of Cota's broader technology platform, CNA Guided Care™. This platform turns raw patient data into real-world evidence and enables it to be used for healthcare decision-making with easy-to-use and powerful web-based software tools. Beginning first with oncology and now expanding into other complex diseases, Cota is helping providers, payers, and life sciences companies create a future where every patient receives the right care at the right place at the right time.
About Cota: Cota is a technology platform that enables providers, payers, and life science companies using real-world evidence to make value-based decisions about diagnosing and treating complex diseases. It is powered by the patented Cota Nodal Address™ (CNA) system, a unique digital classification methodology built by leading physicians and data scientists. The CNA is the first and only system that precisely categorizes patient factors, their diseases and intended therapies, enabling precision medicine at scale.
Cota's technology enriches raw medical records to create research-grade data, and joins it with a suite of analysis, visualization, and management tools. This enables providers, payers, and life sciences companies to analyze, report on, and research outcomes, costs, treatments, and quality at any granularity and stage of the patient journey. The result is a constantly improving system that merges technology and science to help improve the lives of patients everywhere.
