Special Issue "Process-Oriented Data Science for Healthcare 2018 (PODS4H18)"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 April 2019
The world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data. The ultimate goal of data science techniques is not to collect more data, but to extract knowledge and insights from existing data in various forms. For analyzing and improving processes, event data is the main source of information. In recent years, a new research area has emerged combining traditional process analysis and data-centric analysis: Process-Oriented Data Science (PODS). The interdisciplinary nature of this new research area has resulted in its application for analyzing processes in different domains, especially healthcare.
This Special Issue aims at providing a high-quality forum for interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners (both data/process analysts and medical audience) to exchange research findings and ideas on healthcare process analysis techniques and practices. Process-Oriented Data Science for Healthcare (PODS4H) research includes a wide range of topics from process mining techniques adapted for healthcare processes, to practical issues on implementing PODS methodologies in healthcare centers’ analysis units.
This Special Issue includes the extended versions of the accepted articles in the ‘International Workshop on Process-Oriented Data Science 2018’, presenting novel research that demonstrates the potential of PODS approaches for analyzing the way healthcare is delivered.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
