Order dialogs connect clinicians with those providing the desired service to the patient. To make order dialogs function you must evaluate the process that makes things happen.

Often the process is ill defined, variable, or non-existent. The phrase “That is the way we have always done it.” unfurls the red flags that there is danger ahead.
