HIMSS Europe 2013 Amsterdam - SB3: Clinical Decision Support: ChangeManagement and Protocol Maintenance

Process mining focuses in the data generated during the daily activities. Based on these data, processes are automatically constructed using process mining. The clinical paths of different patients are used to construct a general process. The results can be used to determine bottlenecks or to check on compliance to guidelines.

Process mining:
- unveils healthcare processes
- automates discovery of objective insights
- case: performance and guidelines adherence

The other presenter used a different approach that was based on the user knowledge to implement guidelines.

Below you will find the official information of the session including the abstracts

Philippe Kolh, Professor and CIO at University of Liege, Belgium

Process Mining in Hospitals

Prof. Hajo Reijers, Full Professor, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands

Process mining is an analytical technique that can be used to exploit the vast amounts of data that become available through the use of information systems in contemporary organizations, such as hospitals. The technique provides a distinctive process perspective in comparison to other data analysis techniques. This is useful to unveil performance information that is of interest to management, medical specialists and patients. In this talk, the speaker will reflect on the experiences of using process mining in healthcare settings and present findings from these projects. The take-home message is: Process mining is available, applicable, and beneficial to healthcare.
