This paper presents preliminary findings of a study of clinical engineering effectiveness within developing world hospitals. To date, 169 responses have been collected from 43 countries, primarily from Africa, Latin America and Asia, with some representation from the Middle East and Eastern Europe as well. Data is presented on: 1) hospital and clinical engineering department profiles; 2) human and equipment resources; and 3) equipment procurement and donation processes, with a focus on the role… CONTINUE READING
