This paper presents a computer system for assisting the health care services planning and the acquisition process of medical equipment. After choosing one of the health services listed on screen, the computer system presents a second list of essential and secondary equipment for that specific service. To specify chosen equipment from that second list, the user has to answer a series of predetermined questions that are also displayed on screen. At the end of the questionnaire, the program generates a report containing the equipment characteristics defined by the user for its acquisition. All those questions were defined for given equipment based on data describing its own characteristics. The user is able to modify the predetermined questions to adjust them for a specific type of equipment. The answers, given by the users, are then stored by the system and presented every time a new specification for that type of equipment is made. Keywords: Computer system, medical equipment, program.
