How New Jersey Department of Health uses LOINC:
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.
