Organizations, institutions, and other LOINC adopters. Not certified or otherwise verified - just offered here for reference.
We are a Regional Health Information Organization located in Memphis, TN that hand-maps key laboratory codes from participating organizations in order to present aggregated views of the most important labs to users while reducing mapping costs by choosing only to map a subset of all labs.
Ministry Health Care has combined many of the Central/Northern Wisconsin facilities (hospitals and clinics) into one Combined Medical Record (CMR). Since the facilities utilize different lab computer systems, LOINC mapping was performed to help pull the data into the CMR. Mapping to laboratory test was done first, mainly due to the large volume involved.
We have developed a web enabled LIMS to work in conjunction with our portal www.myhealthrecords.in. The base structure for the Coding of tests has been kept per LOINC.
mycarevault is a registered product of HelixDNA Technologies, a healthcare-focused software development organization. mycarevault offer FREE Electronic Medical Records, Practice Management software solutions. Clients include both government and private sector health systems, HIEs, and commercial laboratories. mycarevault provides collateral care across providers and through bi-directional healthcare communications to and from HIE servers. mycarevault is a full-fledged see (www.mycarevault.com) which provides collateral care across providers. Our products are HIPAA compliant and Meaningful use. Our HIE is capable of communicating with any care provider which uses our WebAPI.
NAACCR has developed standards to transmit cancer pathology reports from pathology laboratories to central cancer registries. LOINC codes are used in the HL7 message to indicate major headings of the text-based pathology report.
The NAHLN is a cooperative effort between two USDA agencies—the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA; formerly CSREES)—and the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (www.aavld.org). It is a multifaceted network comprised of sets of laboratories that focus on different diseases, using common testing methods and data standards to process diagnostic requests and share information. To standardize test result data from member labs the NAHLN uses an HL7 messaging protocol. LOINC codes are used to identify test results and individual test orders. Local extension LOINCs are used for NAHLN-specific protocol orders.
NCQA uses LOINC codes in the HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) measures that require laboratory data to identify an event, disease or condition.
Since 2008, the NJ Department of Health has mandated the use of LOINC for sending electronic laboratory reports (ELRs). Over 85% of communicable disease reporting is received through ELRs, and every report has a valid LOINC. In the integrated disease reporting system, the LOINC code is used for reporting case status, which defines workflow and disease investigation priority.
The NextGate MatchMetrix Terminology Registry creates a convenient, cross-referenced and centralized index of LOINC and other codes. Using our industry proven matching logic tuned for the local environment, the Terminology Registry accepts data feeds from disparate code set providers and cross references them to the other entities participating in the ecosystem. The Terminology Registry supports editing of content within standards, mapping across standards, and delivery of content to EMRs, laboratories, PHRs, physician offices, or any business intelligence application. The Terminology Registry has capabilities to import, version, upgrade, link and maintain standards from commercial and government sources.
As the National Health IT Institute, Nictiz actively supports the national adoptions of medical terminologies. LOINC is considered as the standard for laboratory tests.
Our Software solutions (Middleware) for clinical laboratories are compliant with LOINC standards.
LOINC in our Electronic Pathology Reports to be used by General Practitioner’s Practice Management Systems for the care of patients.
The NVKC is committed to use LOINC for all its external data communication, being ordering, reporting and interlaboratory communication. To fully exploit LOINC we will also make translations to Dutch for the subset of LOINC that will be used in daily practice.
We have mapped LOINC to reportable infectious disease. Our HL7 Gateway application identifies the LOINC code in electronic laboratory reports (HL7 2.3.1 format) and then, based on the mapping, routes these reports to the appropriate disease reporting application.
OntoReason builds healthcare reasoning tools for organizations including the CDC, NCI, Emory University and MD Anderson Cancer Center among others. We promote the use of CHI and HITSP standard vocabularies, organized into OWL ontologies for the purpose of reasoning against the hierarchies and structuring reusable valuesets for clinical applications. We are the coding authors for the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists 2009 Position Statements for Nationally Notifiable Diseases that are to be used across the US for surveillance of reportable diseases.
OptumInsight, a part of Optum, is a leading health services business. We use LOINC codes in several of our products being developed.
All Clinical laboratory procedures are LOINC coded.
