Overview

The work on LOINC will provide new content to the SNOMED CT International release which provides supporting content for LOINC parts and expressions. As part of the release (s) expression libraries are also completed to provide a link between LOINC expression and SNOMED CT. The scope includes Laboratory LOINC Terms (Top 2000 lab LOINC Terms) and SNOMED CT Observables. For additional information on Observables please click here Observables.

 

2016DimensionProject ScopeDeliverablesRelease
1.160701-01Loinc Content updates
  1. Technical Preview, release featured flattened rather than nested Expressions which were utilized in previous releases. Also included were some content updates based on feedback from reviewers of the last release, the Observables Group, Regenstrief Institute and the Substance Redesign Team. Over 14000 LOINC Terms linked to equivalent SNOMED CT post-coordinated expressions and over 4200 LOINC Parts mapped to SNOMED CT concepts.

1.Completed, April 2016.

2.160701-02Loinc Content updates
  1. Create map, expression library, and other needed files for the preview release. This includes all the LOINC Parts (LPs) that are mapped (to existing or new SNOMED CT concepts), but not LPs considered "out of scope", e.g. duplicate or veterinary specific LOINC parts.

2. Completed, April 2016.

3.160701-03Loinc Content updates
  1. Review and update files based on feedback received on TP3.
    1. Compare our LP map list with the latest list of LPs received from RII and make any needed updates. Minimal changes are expected to update map. Pending response from RII.

3. Completed, Aug 2016.

4.160701-04Loinc Content updates
  1. 546 LOINC Parts are ready to be reviewed and potentially mapped to existing SNOMED CT concepts or to newly created ones. The Mapping Team is helping create draft concepts for around 300 of these; Farzaneh and Suzanne will create the remainder.
4. Completed, Jan 2017.
