In order to do process mining in healthcare, one soon discovers that simplifying a log is important.
Maybe you don’t need all individual vital signs – but just an event that vital signs action were taken by some clinician.
For that you will need your coded events replaced by some higher level concept (blood pressure – vital signs, respiratory rate – vital signs).
Than you simply collapse events happening within a certain time frame (e.g., 10 minutes) into just one event (vital signs).
Several terminology problems arise with that.
