2008 Menucha Conference

Menucha is an old Hebrew word. Like many of them, it has multiple meanings. It means a place of repose. It describes a place to gather energies and faculties to prepare for whatever beauty or challenge tomorrow holds. It is a familiar and relatively secure place in which to prepare to set out for a destination that can only be dimly perceived.

To identify strategies for dealing with unintended consequences of implementing physician/provider order entry (POE), a consensus conference of invited experts will be convened near Portland, Oregon on May 14-16, 2008. At a retreat center called Menucha, twenty two invited experts will meet with six members of the Physician Order Entry Team (POET) of researchers.
