PALIA-ER: Bringing Question-Driven Process Mining Closer to the Emergency Room

 

Description

PALIA-ER, a web-based tool for question-driven process mining in Emergency Room. PALIA-ER uses Palia discovery algorithm and includes model simplification and filtering features specially domain-specific for ER. Most PALIA-ER functionalities can be easily applied to other interdisciplinary contexts such as other healthcare units, education, or logistics.
