LOINC Introduction and RELMA Workshop (Wednesday, 08/12/2015)

Workshop Requirements

This is a hands-on workshop to teach the fundamentals of LOINC and provide detailed instructions for using RELMA to map local terms to LOINC codes. Because this will be a hands-on workshop, all participants should bring a laptop computer for the exercises. 

To get the most value out of this workshop, you should also bring a delimited-text (e.g. a tab delimited or CSV file) or Excel version of your local terms (e.g., your test list). This file must contain the test code and test description. (For quantitative measures, be sure to include the units of measure). Details about format will be sent to you after registration for the workshop.


alertA laptop with MS Windows. (RELMA only runs on Windows). For Mac users, you'll need to setup Boot Camp or another virtual machine.

Please download the latest version of RELMA prior to arriving for the tutorial. (It is a pretty big download, so will save time at the meeting).

We also recommend that you obtain and peruse the pdfLOINC users' guide and pdfRELMA users' guide before attending.
