I’m very new to LOINC and learning as much as I can since our LIS is going to be coming online in the near future, and we want LOINC to be a part of it.
Where is the best place to get started to better understand the uploading of LOINC information into an LIS. I have gone through the Essentials, but still not quite understanding what that process is. Also, we recently got a file from our reference laboratory (Mayo) with information on our send out tests, but it DID NOT contain the LOINC codes. If they had a file that did contain their LOINC codes, how would one upload that into the LIS? Any help would be appreciated.
