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.
