 +===== Abstract =====
 +
 +To gain competitive advantage, hospitals try to streamline their processes.
 +In order to do so, it is essential to have an accurate view of the “careflows”
 +under consideration. In this paper, we apply process mining techniques to obtain
 +meaningful knowledge about these flows, e.g., to discover typical paths followed
 +by particular groups of patients. This is a non-trivial task given the dynamic nature
 +of healthcare processes. The paper demonstrates the applicability of process
 +mining using a real case of a gynecological oncology process in a Dutch hospital.
 +Using a variety of process mining techniques, we analyzed the healthcare
 +process from three different perspectives:​ (1) the control flow perspective,​ (2) the
 +organizational perspective and (3) the performance perspective. In order to do so
 +we extracted relevant event logs from the hospitals information system and analyzed
 +these logs using the ProMframework. The results show that process mining
 +can be used to provide new insights that facilitate the improvement of existing
 +careflows.
