Introduction

In order to develop guidance the guidelines in the following section, an environmental scan was conducted of different use case involving the use of  SNOMED CT and/or LOINC

...

  • Practical clinical scenarios in which SNOMED CT and/or LOINC are currently used:
    • Bio-surveillance (animal/human health) networks.
    • Clinical laboratory reporting (mostly Microbiology area).
    • Infectious diseases for lab order entries.
  • Healthcare information standards, that require or enable the use of SNOMED CT and/or LOINC.

Summary of Results

The summary information on this page is based on analysis of use cases and guidelines identified during an environmental scan of current usage of LOINC and SNOMED CT in clinical laboratory systems and related healthcare systems.
