Course Description

This course is made available through the eLearnAfrica and FutureLearn partnership.

Learn how to get the most from healthcare data using process mining


Within healthcare there are thousands of complex and variable processes that generate data including treatment of patients, lab results and internal logistic processes. Analysing this data is vital for improving these processes and ending bottlenecks.


On this course you will explore how process mining can help turn this data into valuable insights by looking at different areas of process mining and seeing how it has been applied. You will even get the chance to apply process mining on real life healthcare data.


This course is for healthcare experts who want to find out more about using data to solve problems and execute ideas. It will also be of interest to process mining enthusiasts who want to know more about the application of process mining to healthcare. You don’t need any prior experience, just a keen interest in the topic.


We strongly advise you to carry out the process mining activities using the data provided in this course. For this we will be using our free and open source tool ProM lite. Please download the most recent ProM lite version from www.promtools.org.
