IBM Health Corps and Partners in Health

2018
Haiti, Rwanda

In low- and middle-income countries, instructions for ordering and administering toxic chemotherapy drugs are given via verbal or written instruction, leaving room for human error and potential to affect patient safety. IBM Citizenship and Partners In Health collaborated to design and develop chemotherapy ordering functionality, a high risk part of a doctor’s workflow, to track and report patient’s chemotherapy regimens within OpenMRS -- a free, open source electronic medical record (EMR). PIH's goal is to leverage this new capability to facilitate the safe delivery of chemotherapy to their cancer patients in Haiti, and eventually, Rwanda, in addition to any of the other 3,000 users of OpenMRS globally.
