I am working on some projects to better integrate state PDMPs (prescription drug monitoring programs) into existing HIT. I have some reports that I want to design. A search of RELMA doesn’t show any document types close to what I want to do. How would I suggest getting a LOINC code and nomencalture for these reports?
Some of the requested information (package insert, units, etc.) for a new term is specific for laboratory terms (vs. document type codes). For document type codes, please include example reports, descriptions for terms, and any other relevant information about the term(s).
I would like to gang up on this question. The documentation and the excellent in-person tutorials do a wonderful job of teaching how to submit most “normal” observation code requests. That leaves a number of areas around the edges that would make great material for an “advanced tutorial.” In addition to new document types, which I haven’t actually had to try, I would include new panels, tests with new methods (bacteria identification by MALDI-TOF?), etc.
