SUMMARY OF APPROACH 2Summary of ApproachUse of appropriate technology in the health sector contributes to the provision of high-quality services, reduced costs, and increased access to healthcare services. The field of clinical engineering is essential not only in the repair and maintenance of clinical devices but also in supporting and optimization of clinical technology (Hegarty, Amoore, Scott, Blackett, & McCarthy, 2014). The field involves support and advancing care and healthcare technology management. The clinical engineers integrate the engineering practice in the healthcare system by working with the authorities to ensure compliance with the set standards, acting as technologyconsultants for other hospital staffs, and training and supervision of biomedical equipment technicians. Research and developments are also conducted to enhance the state of the art equipment in clinical facilities.
