Objective: To explore a useful tool for health administrative departments to manage the community health service (CHS).
Methods: On the basis of existing health laws and regulations in China, we describe the design of an automated management system for the CHS with a supervision system and an evaluation system using computer technology and corresponding design software.
Results: Four changes to the management of the CHS were made: repetitive work became automated, complicated work became simplified, nonregular services decreased, and obscure instructions became clear and specific.
Conclusion: The automated management system will promote the development of CHS management.
