This book evaluates the possibilities for process mining in hospitals. The authors provide a resolution to this question by depicting a healthcare reference model that showcases various classes of data that are potentially available for process mining in healthcare and the relationships between them. Subsequently, based on this reference model, authors explain the application opportunities for process mining in this domain and discuss the various kinds of analyses that can be performed.
The primary focus relies on organizational healthcare processes rather than medical treatment processes. The combination of event data and process mining techniques allows authors to analyze the operational processes within a hospital based on facts, thus providing a solid basis for managing and improving processes within hospitals. To this end, they also explicitly elaborate on data quality issues that are relevant for the data aspects of the healthcare reference model.
Readers of this book are basically advanced professionals involved in areas related to business process management, business intelligence, data mining, and business process redesign for healthcare systems as well as graduate students specializing in healthcare information systems and process analysis.
