HIMSS18: Interview with Stuart Goldberg, M.D. | Cota | Precision Payment
On this episode we talk with Stuart Goldberg, MD, Chief Scientific Officer at Cota. Dr. Goldberg tells us all about Cota’s physician-led journey to organize and classify real-world evidence about every type of cancer. This effort led to something they call the Cota Nodal Address (CNA), and it’s enabling health systems to get very specific about the types of patients they’re treating, the costs associated with them, and the outcomes being achieved. This apples-to-apples comparison allows Cota to identify variation and address it in ways that are beneficial to the provider, payer and patient. It enables a concept Dr. Goldberg calls “Precision Payment”, which in turn enables proper bundled payment design, and precision medicine. Read Full Release

Dana Callow to be Panelist at Funding Models in Biotech MBBP Life Sciences Series – Panel 3
Today’s financing environment for emerging biotech companies presents a number of challenges. Venture capital funds are ever more cautious about taking risk, and some players have departed the field at the early stage.

However, new players have entered the fray in the last few years, including family offices, super angels, strategic partners and foreign investors, replacing the investment dollars previously offered by institutional investors. So where does an emerging biotech company forage for precious dollars? Come join us on September 22nd at the CIC in Cambridge to hear a panel of experts discuss these trends. At the event, you will discover, among other ideas: Where and how to find the new players; What areas of interest are these players financing; How to optimize your chances of success; What are deal structures looking like?
