Cancer is a major public health challenge in low and middle income countries (LMICs). In this paper, we describe work in progress to develop functionality within an open-source electronic medical records system to support safe and standardized cancer care in low-resource settings. We engaged cancer care providers from LMICs to elicit and prioritize requirement, and following a rapid application development approach we developed chemotherapy prescription and documentation functionality within OpenMRS.
