pMineR: An Innovative R Library for Performing Process Mining in Medicine
Process Mining is an emerging discipline investigating tasks related with the automated identification of process models, given real-world data (Process Discovery). The analysis of such models can provide useful insights to domain experts. In addition, models of processes can be used to test if a given process complies (Conformance Checking) with specifications. For these capabilities, Process Mining is gaining importance and attention in healthcare.
In this paper we introduce pMineR, an R library specifically designed for performing Process Mining in the medical domain, and supporting human experts by presenting processes in a human-readable way.
