Located in Virginia, US, Appian Corporation possesses an extensive portfolio that extends its products and services to businesses across the globe. One such instance involves Appian deploying process mining in a renowned Germany-based hospital. The parent hospital group runs 27 hospitals dedicated to varying departments and levels of care. Given the expansion of the hospitals, the client wanted to ensure its services aligned with digital transformation in healthcare and incorporate digitalization and automation processes to improve patient care.

In hospitals, process optimization extends beyond abstract metrics. It also encompasses process efficiency to ensure rapid care of patients in critical states. Moreover, process transparency builds customer trust and boosts company positioning. Keeping these considerations at the forefront, Appian deployed its process mining capabilities to integrate digital process analysis into the hospital’s functions. With Appian’s assistance, the hospital created a data-based system for optimizing critical processes, such as central emergency room and billing processes.

With Appian’s process mining capabilities, the client could design the perfect solution that leveraged the full potential of new and emerging data. The hospital chain utilized Appian’s low-code development features like versatile visualization and analysis functions to make all digital processes transparent. Furthermore, Appian designed a central data warehouse to analyze the hospital’s data sustainability. This virtual database stored relevant data processes extracted from a wide array of data sources, allowing hospital experts to view the processes in a streamlined and structured manner. Additionally, Appian’s open interface platform processed data directly from the data warehouse, enabling the hospital to run strategic target-performance comparisons and generate performance measurements to identify the optimization potentials.

Appian deployed its process mining analysis on two central processes: the central emergency room and the billing process, with both processes initially built on simple structures and procedures. However, the hospital required Appian’s advanced process mining abilities to perform data analysis and compare the desired state of these processes with the existing states. Thus, Appian’s process performance played a fundamental role in optimizing both processes—the optimization of the emergency room indicated a direct improvement in the hospital’s service quality across all locations, adding value for patients, and the fast billing processes allowed the client to increase internal performance and ensure healthy hospital-wide competition to reach better outcomes.

Appian’s assistance improved the quality of patient care, reduced the waiting time between patient discharge and the final invoice by 80%, and enhanced communication across all departments for streamlined documentation.
