Digital platforms in healthcare institutions enable tracking and recording of patient care pathways. Besides the Electronic Health Records (EHRs), the event logs from Hospital Information Systems (HIS) are a very efficient source of information, from both operational and clinical point of view. Process mining allows comparison of a patient care pathway with the event log(s) from HIS, to understand how well the reality as depicted in the event log fits the expectation as modeled using a care pathway. In this paper, we present SepVis, a visual analytics tool which aims to fill the gap in current process-centric applications by looking at patients' pathways from a clinical point of view. We demonstrate the utility of SepVis in selected use cases derived by the guidelines in the management of sepsis patients.
