— The Breast Cancer Case Monitoring and Mapping System for Decision Support is an information system that aims to address the need for consistent monitoring of breast cancer patients’ progress from initial diagnosis and treatment plans, to death. In the process of gathering data, relevant statistics, graphical analysis, and maps are generated by the system. These are powerful tools to mobilize authorities to initiate and materialize programs that intensify breast cancer awareness and prevention campaigns, early detection and diagnosis, and treatment assistance. The concept of the project is inspired by facts such as the Philippines, among other Asian countries, currently having the highest age standardized incidence for breast cancer with a rapid increase of 5% annually.
