Clinical pathway CP is a medical management tool made by a group ofmedical specialists and specialized for certain diseases. It has been proved thatCP was an efficient way to optimize the hospitalization management and controlmedical cost. In this paper, we focused on the effect of CP in the patientswith acute complicated appendicitis via total duration of hospitalization,hospitalization time before operation, total cost of hospitalization and drugexpenditure. From March 2014 to March 2015, the patients with conditions ofappendicitis in Three Gorges Central Hospital of Wanzhou, Chongqing, weredivided into CP group and non path control group to analyze the effect of theapplication of CP. Our data showed that there were no significant differencesbetween two groups of patients in total duration of hospitalization,hospitalization time before operation, total cost of hospitalization and drugexpenditure. The implementation of CP neither decreased the time of patients inhospital nor the total hospitalization cost. Besides, application of CP foracute appendicitis patients should distinguish between simple appendicitis andcomplicated appendicitis, simple appendectomy patients implement CP isbeneficial, and patients with complicated appendicitis did not come from thebenefit.
