I decided to join the COTA team because I was fascinated with the mission of bringing clarity to cancer. When electronic medical data is put into the right format, it can be a powerful tool for providers. It can help them choose optimal treatments for cancer patients, develop research control arms, inform payers and more. Working at COTA is a great way to work in Healthcare IT, while still feeling connected to the clinical world.
Working for COTA these past seven months has been the most unique and remarkable experience I have had in my career. I appreciate the work flexibility, the dedication everyone has to their coworkers as well as the company’s mission. I think the team’s dedication to the same noble cause brings everyone together. Similarly, regardless of employee location, there are always spaces to communicate and get to know everyone you work with!
For anyone looking for a change in the oncology or healthcare IT field, I would suggest joining COTA. It is a great way to be part of the oncology community, as well as a company that is always looking for ways to improve itself. And last but certainly not least, COTA allows you to be a part of projects that will supply data used to create better treatments and improve overall outcomes for cancer patients.
