Chinese Health Information Standardization Society (CHISS)
How CHISS uses LOINC:
Chinese Health Information Standardization Society (CHISS) is a national academic organization of China engaged in producing and advocating the adoption of national standards relevant to health information. The members of CHISS come from various aspects that have some interests in healthcare domain. CHISS held an inaugural meeting in Beijing in April 2004, and Dr. Xu Yongyong,a professor of health statistics from the Fourth Military Medical University (FMMU) of PLA was elected the chair of CHISS at that meeting. The secretariat of CHISS is now in FMMU. All organizations and individuals who are interested in health information standardization are welcomed to join our society.
LOINC codes are used to develop various clinical documents for our national interoperability in the healthcare domain. In addition, we developed an online searching application called Chinese LOINC Interface System (CLIS), which is a pilot project that aims to show a simplified Chinese version of LOINC terms. The system is hosted by the CHISS web site.
