Get to know who we are. Passionate about our work, each day represents a new challenge to make this a better world. Years of observing, leading and consulting teams made us realize that is the lack of knowledge that makes effective teamwork so hard.
Process Mining for Health was born from the work of its founder back in 2009, whom we have joined to create what PM4H is today. In order to provide the necessary tools to delve into health systems and thus contribute high-value care to citizens, PM4H was conceived within a great family whose journey began in 1998 in the SABIEN (Technological Innovation for Health and Well-Being), which forms part of the Institute of Applied Information Technologies and Advanced Communication, a centre of excellence for research and development of ICT affiliated to Universitat Politècnica de València.
The experience garnered by SABIEN of applied ICT in the area of healthcare is the fruit of years of hard work and participation in multitude of projects. As a result, the group has established agreements with a wide range of private and governmental organisations, pooling knowledge and applications and making SABIEN a gold standard in applying Process Mining for Health, both at national and international level.
Derived from this activity, PM4H has become today a cutting-edge technology that brings all knowledge acquired during these years in the healthcare sector into a tool that helps on the digital transformation of the health organizations by providing a new way to understand data.
