Abstract

Abstract.

Human echinococcosis is a serious parasitic disease threatening public health worldwide especially in Xinjiang, China, an undeveloped farming and pastoral area. A multihospital surgical network was applied to improve human echinococcosis control. An innovative surgery network connected the 28 designated public hospitals, which distributed in a vast land of 1,600,000 m. The surgery network integrated the efficient patient digital information sharing, treatment consulting, patient transfer, and financial support. The 6-year practical outcome of 2,544 surgeries in Xinjiang, China, was retrospectively analyzed. Electronic database and surgery network have been proven especially effective in undeveloped area with vast territory, sparse population, multiple languages, and poor traffic conditions. This network turned out effectively improved patient processing efficiency and decreased the medical cost.
