Abstract In developing countries, the management of in-patient bed allocation is increasingly becoming complex as a result of inadequate bed capacity, poor scheduling policies and financial constraints in hospitals. The use of a decision based system could aid hospital staff and health decision-makers to carry out efficient in-patient beds allocation, thus potentially reducing costs and in-patient length of stay. This study developed a Decision Based Management System for Hospital Bed Allocation in other to enhance easy accessibility and efficient bed allocation in the hospital in a fairly and timely manner using State Specialist Hospital, Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria as case study and Microsoft Visual Studio, C#, ASP.net and SQL SERVER 2005 tools for the implementation. The analysis of the manual method served as the input used to developed and experiment the functionalities of the proposed system.
