Hospitals are facing high pressure to be profitable with ecreasing funds in a stressed healthcare sector. This situation calls for methods to enable process management and intelligent methods in their daily work. However, traditional process intelligence systems work with logs of execution data that is generated by workflow engines controlling the execution of a process. But the nature of the treatment processes requires the doctors to work with a high freedom of action, rendering workflow engines unusable in this context. In this chapter, we describe a process intelligence approach to develop a platform for clinical pathways for hospitals without using workflow engines. Our approach is explained using a case in liver transplantation, but is generalizable on other clinical pathways as well.
