Process mining is gaining significant importance in the healthcare domain, where the quality of services depends on the suitable and efficient execution of processes. A pivotal challenge for the application of process mining in the healthcare domain comes from the growing importance of multi-centric studies, where privacy-preserving techniques are strongly needed. In this paper, building on top of the well-known Alpha algorithm, we introduce a distributed process mining approach, that allows to overcome problems related to privacy and data being spread around. The introduced technique allows to perform process mining without sharing any patients-related information, thus ensuring privacy and maximizing the possibility of cooperation among hospitals.
