What is Interactive Process Mining?

  • More and more intelligent systems are able to extract information about how patients are provided with health services.
  • However, these systems are usually black boxes for professionals who have to rely blindly on the results they offer without getting clues as to why they make those decisions.
  • The proposal of this experience is based on the application of interactive models. Interactive models are intelligent systems that are focused on producing models that can be understood by health professionals. 
  • Within these models, we propose the use of Process Mining techniques, which are able to show the process that the patient follows in an understandable and interactive way.
  • In this way it is intended that the expert be able to incorporate their own professional experience to understand, evaluate the value chain and optimize the care processes that are applied to patients.
  • This line presents an application for the application of Interactive Process Mining in the field of health called PMApp.

This tool has been tested in numerous health centers around the world and in different fields such as obesity, diabetes, surgical procedures, urgencies, stroke, dementia … among many others with very promising results.

The objective of this seminar is to expose the possibilities of interactive process mining for its application in the Sanitary environment in order to understand the processes that make people sick and to analyze, evaluate and measure the impact of health policies and treatments. apply in the patient from a value-based medicine point of view.
