 Within a typical hospital information system many different subsystems can be found. These systems record all steps of processes in execution. Based on this data, process mining aims at discovering process knowledge. Moreover, it allows for obtaining both qualitative and quantitative insights into these processes (e.g. performance information). As factual execution data is used, an objective view is provided on how healthcare processes are //really// executed. Obviously, there is a clear difference between process mining and more traditional ways of investigating business processes. For example, by conducting interviews there is always the risk that answers are subjective, idealized, and give an incomplete view on reality. Within a typical hospital information system many different subsystems can be found.
