Process mining has gained increasing attention recently in the field of information science as a set of concepts, methods, and techniques to analyze the execution of business processes. In traditional application domains of business process technology including finance and electronic commerce, process mining provides insights about how exactly business processes are performed. Since then, process mining has experienced an explosion of its use to other, more novel application scenarios, including logistics, public administration, and, more prominently, healthcare.

In this minitrack, we provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss novel ideas in the area of process mining in healthcare. We invite submissions on process mining in the broad field of healthcare, including patient treatment processes, both in clinics and with practitioners, processes involving healthcare service providers including healthcare insurance companies.

This minitrack is supported by the Process-Oriented Data Science for Healthcare Alliance, the chapter within the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining to promote the use of Process Mining in Healthcare.

Call for Papers

We call for papers in the spectrum of process mining in the healthcare. The topics of the minitrack include but are not limited to the following aspects:

  • Data preparation for process mining in healthcare

  • Event log generation in healthcare environments

  • Data privacy in healthcare

  • Process mining for interleaving treatment processes

  • Healthcare processes in the Covid-19 age

  • Discovery and analysis of patient treatment processes

  • Healthcare process analytics

  • Care pathway construction and analysis

  • Formalization of medical knowledge and reasoning

  • Process conformance and clinical guidelines

  • Healthcare procedures training, assessment, and feedback

  • Data-driven compliance analysis for health care processes

  • Healthcare information, systems, and architectures

  • Logistics processes in healthcare

  • Processes in development, production, and provision of medication

  • Human-in-the-loop approaches to process mining in healthcare

  • Methods and frameworks to deploy process mining in healthcare
