    If I look at a page like https://loinc.org/777-3/ , there are several fields that would be quite useful to me, such as Consumer Name and Part Description. However the JSON returned from the CodeSystem endpoint for this LOINC code (https://fhir.loinc.org/CodeSystem/$lookup?system=http://loinc.org&code=777-3) does not include these, and many other interesting fields from that page. Nor does the LOINC part for this code (https://fhir.loinc.org/CodeSystem/$lookup?system=http://loinc.org&code=LP14597-6) include these fields.

    Is there any way to retrieve these (and other) interesting fields via the REST API?

    Hi John, thank you for your question. Yes, there are several LOINC properties that are not yet available via our API using FHIR. In the next 6-12 months we will be adding additional fields. The Consumer Names have an Alpha status so they may not be available until they reach production maturity.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.
