Invitation to the Public Laboratory LOINC® Workshop and Meeting

LOINC (Logical Observation Identifier Names and Codes) is a no-cost database of names and codes that identify laboratory, clinical, and HIPAA attachment variables.

Workshop and Meeting Purpose:

  1. To educate users about the use and utility of LOINC codes
  2. To obtain public and Committee input

As the practice, regulation, and reimbursement of medicine become more complicated, we need a standard way to identify tests, and other clinical measurements-a common language for building electronic medical records, managing the clinical enterprise, doing research and work together-so we can speak the same language especially in terms of analyzing biological samples and interpreting test results. LOINC codes provide that language.
