2004 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 unintended consequences of implementing physician/provider order entry (POE), a consensus conference of invited experts holding multiple perspectives was convened near Portland, Oregon on April 8 and 9, 2004. At a retreat center called Menucha, thirteen experts met with seven members of the Physician Order Entry Team (POET) of researchers.
