Abstract:Within the hospital, different care paths are followed by patients diag�nosed with sepsis, which is a life-threatening condition, predominantly caused by an infection. Current models of sepsis treatments do not take into account how care paths differ per subpopulation of patients and whether differences and similarities exist between multiple subpopulation processes. This research uses process mining to find and visualize differences in the treatments of different subpopulations within the patients diagnosed with sepsis. The aim is to find differences and similarities between the in-hospital treatment processes of the subpopulations. Using these results, interesting insights about sepsis treatment are obtained. Future research could go deeper into the treatment processes in correspondence with the hospital to perform better medically informed research. Further, it could investigate how to implement changes within the treatment based on the obtained results
