Request for information on EHRs for cancer care

From a colleague in Uganda:

Hi,
My name is Johnblack Kabukye, a medical doctor and health informatician at the Uganda Cancer Institute in Kampala, Uganda. I am also a PhD student in medical informatics at the Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam. We are conducting research on electronic medical records for oncology in low resource settings, so we are looking for stakeholders in cancer care in developing countries (doctors, oncologists, nurses, radiation-oncologists, data personnel, biostatisticians, health informatics specialists, IT personnel, hospital managers, etc) to help us give their opinions on these focus questions:

1) What features or functionalities do you need in an electronic medical records system for cancer care?

2) If you have such an EMR with all the functionalities and features, What would you need to be able to implement and  use that system well?    

Kindly get in touch with me using the contact info below if you are happy to assist in this research. Let me know if, and when, we can have a Skype call to get your input, or share your thoughts via email.
Please also put me in contact with any other persons that you think might be key informants on this subject.
Thanks in advance!
