The evolution of biomedical technology has led to the enhanced use of medical devices in healthcare delivery. Clinical engineering departments (CEDs), in order to improve their services and monitor the outcomes, are introducing more and more telematic means. In the present work, a new computerized, integrated, windows oriented system intended for CED management is proposed. The system model is based on a star architecture, whose implementation has been carried out by a set of software units, addressing predefined CED specific tasks. Practical usefulness of the whole system has been demonstrated on a pilot evaluation trial. Its adoption could improve and speed up the management processes and maintenance services provided by the CED in the hospitals.
