LOINC virtual conference meeting Zoom

Jam-packed schedule

This event is even bigger than the last LOINC Conference in October 2020. We have added four additional presentations to the schedule—a combined total of 19 engaging talks. Each session allows ample time for your questions and feedback.

Tremendous learning opportunity

The push for health data interoperability is coming from many directions, and LOINC plays an essential role. At this event you’ll learn what’s necessary to implement LOINC into your systems.

Access to all presentation resources after the event

Learning doesn't stop at the conclusion of the conference. As a paid attendee, you will have access to slides and recordings for all presentations. That way you can catch any of the sessions you may have missed. Please allow two weeks for resources to be processed and made available.
