LOINC Table, Reports, and User's Guide

 

The LOINC table includes fields for the LOINC codes and each of the six parts of the fully-specified name. There are many other fields (described in the Users' Guide) that contain synonyms, comments, and other information. The LOINC table is available in several file formats.

The LOINC distribution also includes several LOINC Accessory Files and other documentation.

LOINC Table Files

   
     
 

LOINC Table File - CSV Text Format (6.1 MB)

A zip file archive that contains: 1) The LOINC table in CSV text format with each record on a separate line (terminated by CR/LF) and each field delimited by a comma character. Non-null text fields are enclosed in double quotes. 2) Directories with the scripts and files needed for basic import into Oracle and MySQL databases. 3) Other files, including the LOINC License, LOINC Release Notes, MapTo table, and Source Organization table.

File Version: LOINC 2.58 | Release Date: 2016-12-21 | File type: application/zip

   
 

LOINC Table File - Microsoft Access Format (11.4 MB)

A zip file archive that contains all of the LOINC table fields in a Microsoft Access™ database format.

File Version: LOINC 2.58 | Release Date: 2016-12-21 | File type: application/zip

   
 

LOINC Table Changes File (18.2 MB)

Contains all records that have been edited since the last release, including changes in many ancillary attributes such as RELATEDNAMES2, SHORTNAME, and COMMENT fields. We make lots of edits to such fields, so most of these changes do not alter the LOINC term name. This file is in a Microsoft Access™ database format, compressed as a zip file.

File Version: LOINC Changes 2.56 to 2.58 | Release Date: 2016-12-21 | File type: application/zip

   
 

LOINC Table Changes Report File (2.4 MB)

A report that highlights all the changes to the primary LOINC name fields since the last release. LOINC follows good terminology management practices, so these changes reflect modifications to our naming convention rules, style, and efforts for consistency rather that changes to the concept meaning.

File Version: LOINC Changes Report 2.56 to 2.58 | Release Date: 2016-12-21 | File type: application/pdf

   
       
 

LOINC Documentation

   
       
 

LOINC Users' Guide (1.4 MB)
