  Project E-NNOVATE: Electronic Innovations in Cancer Registration

E-NNOVATE is an ongoing collaborative project to develop the DHIS2-CanReg application linking a cancer registry to electronic medical health records (EMHRs).  This tool will improve the way cancer data is collected, enhancing its value and useability.

This application will be free, and open-sourced, and can be easily adopted by any country. In addition, a network of experts are being trained to support new users following its global roll-out, scheduled for December 2023. Coordinated by IARC-Global Initiative for Cancer Registries, the project is currently and successfully being piloted in Rwanda and the IARC-GICR Caribbean Hub for Cancer Registration
