The knowledge of patient-flow is very important for healthcare organizations, because strongly connected to effectiveness and efficiency of resource allocation. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to process analysis are scarcely effective and low efficient: they are very time-consuming and they may not provide an accurate picture of healthcare processes. Process mining techniques help to overcome these problems. This paper proposes a methodology for building a DRG related patient-flow using…

Process mining applications in the healthcare domain: A comprehensive review
Process mining (PM) is a well‐known research area that includes techniques, methodologies, and tools for analyzing processes in a variety of application domains. In the case of healthcare, processes
Service Reconfiguration in Healthcare Systems: The Case of a New Focused Hospital Unit
TLDR
This research aims to support service reconfiguration by proposing a methodology exploiting the benefits of process mining techniques in the healthcare systems by identifying/analyzes the patient flow and estimates the resources necessary for specific classes of patients.
Can process mining automatically describe care pathways of patients with long-term conditions in UK primary care? A study protocol
TLDR
This study will apply process mining algorithms to the data held on the clinical management system of four practices of varying characteristics in the West Midlands to determine how each interacts with patients with hypertension or type 2 diabetes, and refined the automated production of maps of care processes for the selected condition.
Clinical pathway modelling: a literature review
TLDR
The findings suggest that future work should consider industrial engineering integrated with OR techniques, with an aim to improving the handling of multiple scopes within one model, while encouraging interaction between the disjoint care levels and with a more direct focus on patient outcomes.
The Business Process Model and Notation Used for the Representation of Alzheimer's Disease Patients Care Process
TLDR
The BPMN modeling and mapping of the specific care path for neurodegenerative patients is presented and the presented model offers the option of expanding treatment cost calculation to simulate the process using graphical tools and languages.
Management of Open Innovation in Healthcare for Cost Accounting Using EHR
TLDR
This paper deals with the social open innovation theory, the innovation of cycle theory, and the microcosting approach to create a new framework which includes both theories and provides results for health managers and health decision-makers.

Application of Process Mining in Healthcare - A Case Study in a Dutch Hospital
TLDR
The paper demonstrates the applicability of process mining using a real case of a gynecological oncology process in a Dutch hospital and shows that process mining can be used to provide new insights that facilitate the improvement of existing careflows.
On process mining in health care
TLDR
It is argued that existing process mining methods fail to identify good process models, even for well-defined clinical processes, and a number of reasons for this shortcoming are identified.
