With the technology emerging more and more possible applications of process mining in healthcare become apparent. In most cases the goal of applying process mining to the healthcare domain is to find out what actually happened and to deliver a concise assessment of the organizational reality by mining the event logs of health information systems. To develop medical guidelines or patient pathways considering economic aspects and quality of care, a comparative analysis of different existing approaches is useful (e.g. how different hospitals execute the same process in different ways). This work discusses how to use existing process mining techniques for comparative analysis of healthcare processes and presents an approach based on the L* life-cycle model.
