Medical Equipment Repair Management System Developed Using Cloud Technology

Chen-Lin Lee and Chang-Jer Wu

With advancements in technology, cloud systems not only provide diversified services but are also used in a broad range of applications. This study developed and designed a new medical-equipment repair management system in which cloud and Quick Response (QR) code technologies are employed. This study emphasized the research objectives of cost control and implementation performance and discussed how using a cloud platform reduces cost and the risk of developing information systems. Regarding the cost of information management system development, this study adopted cost allocation and cost reduction approaches and employed the parametric modeling concept to build a mathematical function between costs and the scales of software. This study offers managers the opportunity to assess the overall hospital equipment maintenance process and seek improvements for increased efficiency and effectiveness. The new system built in this study is a novel alternative to existing systems. The existing system enabled this system to be both economical and highly competitive.
