Medical assistance to stroke patients must start as early as possible; however, several changes have impacted healthcare services during the Covid-19 pandemic. This research aimed to identify the stroke onset-to-door time during the Covid-19 pandemic considering the different paths a patient can take until receiving specialized care. It is a retrospective study based on process mining (PM) techniques applied to 221 electronic healthcare records of stroke patients during the pandemic. The results are two process models representing the patient’s path and performance, from the onset of the first symptoms to admission to specialized care. PM techniques have discovered the patient journey in providing fast stroke assistance.
