SummaryA well-controlled, meticulous process has a far higher probability of resulting in a high quality of medical care than improvisation and unstructured creativity. Algorithms display decision-making treatment processes and problem-solving strategies by giving clearly defined and formalized guidelines. The flow chart for decision-making follows the yes/no dichotomy of binary logic. The systematic ordering of decision points and consequent actions is guided by medical priority and thus… CONTINUE READING
