Abstract: This article shows how to approach to complexity government in a healthcare structure, using biomedical and architectural skills together with informatics to improve healthcare management. The developed system, called SACS, is a custom VB software that drives Autocad. It provides a mapping of every single hospital room in terms of beds, square meters, destination of use, functional area and many other details. Each room is considered as part of a ward introducing the concept of Main Destination of Use (MDU). System reports can be used via web by hospital top management as well as by clinical engineer, who can assess parameters like the maintenance state of an equipment or its obsolescence, being aware of the hospital context in which this equipment has been used.
