The map to LOINC project.

We describe a pilot project to standardize local laboratory test names to Logical Observation Identifier Names and Codes (LOINC) at five Indian Health Service (IHS) medical facilities. An automated mapping tool was developed to assign LOINC codes. The laboratory test names not mapped to LOINC by the mapping tool were assigned LOINC codes manually. The results achieved matched current benchmarks.
