We are interested in "mapping" the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health to LOINC, in response to the November, 2006 recommendations from the federal Consolidated Health Informatics Initiative that were subsequently adopted by the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics and the Secretary for Health and Human Services.

Those recommendations called for

"1. Clinical LOINC representation of federally-required assessment (i) questions and answers, and (ii) assessment forms that include functioning and disability content as a CHI standard;"

and in relation to the ICF, those recommendations called for

"2. CHI Endorsed Vocabulary Content: (a) International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) as a CHI-endorsed standard for the functioning and disability domains."
