My institute is trying to standardize laboratory ordering panels, by mapping the current orders to LOINC panels. However, we had a difficult time finding exact-matching panels, given we follow the business rules for best practices in the LOINC manual and the R/O/C constrains, e.g. our electrolyte panel contains all but not 2075-0 Chloride [Moles/volume] in Serum or Plasma
We note that there are convenience panels like: 54040-1 HEDIS 2009 Codes to identify LDLc screening (CDC-H), which appeared to be more lenient and adaptive. We would like to seek for your advice on the implementation and see if we could submit our panels for consideration. Thanks a lot.
I don’t know how I missed this, very sorry for the delay. Regenstrief has asked for feedback on a particular LOINC Order Panel through the Contact Us page under submissions. I have already turned in feedback on Electrolytes and Arterial Blood gases. They have not been addressed as yet.
