Herein, the design implementation and deployment of an object oriented software system, suitable for the monitoring of cardio surgical departments, is investigated. Distributed design architectures are applied and the implemented software system can be deployed on distributed infrastructures. The software is flexible and adaptable to any cardio surgical environment regardless of the department resources used. The system exploits the relations and the interdependency of the successive bed positions that the patients occupy at the different health care units during their stay in a cardio surgical department, to determine bed availabilities and to perform patient scheduling and instant rescheduling whenever necessary. It also aims to successful monitoring of the workings of the cardio surgical departments in an efficient manner.
