    The new grouping of loinc codes is a great new feature.
    Given it is in alpha:
    What is the roadmap for it? Beta by October 2017?
    Full production in Jan 2018?

    I like very much the new policy of creating generic terms where specific exists.
    I also feel like my forum post made a difference. Very encouraging.

    I think these column are important for billing. Some are used as claims attachment.

    So I would ignore this classification into (DOC.CLINRPT, DOC.MISC, ATTACH.GENERAL and ATTACH.CLNRPT) and if a concept is a fit – why not use it.

    Our mapping efferts advanced and we have a good mapping of top 80% of document types (2 mappers) and a draft mapping for all 174 distinct document types in our IDR.

    Few things we are finding out:
    – legacy doc. types and active doc types (mapping old to new using LOINC DO)
    – some local doc. types could be renamed to fit better
    – some new LOINC codes can be created and we will submit those
    – LOINC part codes vs. LOINC codes and the higher level hierarchy – sometimes it would be nice to map our doc. type to a class concept (parent), e.g., like for example lab panel

    here are the new concepts which might be interesting:

    Nursing doc: Vascular Access Device Observation Document
    Nursing doc: Skin and Hygiene Observation Document

    I downloaded the template for submission (Basic Template – MS Excel (.xls))
    but the file is more optimized for lab LOINC.
    What template should I use for clinicalLOINC DO domain?

    see the fiels here:
    REFERENCE_ID NAME ORGANIZATION PHONE FAX EMAIL ORG_SOURCE_CARE_ORG PROJECT_DESCRIPTION LOCAL_BATTERY_CODE LOCAL_BATTERY_DESCRIPTION LOCAL_TEST_CODE LOCAL_TEST_DESCRIPTION REFERRAL_LAB_CODE REFERRAL_LAB TEST_DESCRIPTION LOCAL_TEST_UNITS TEST_INSTRUMENT TEST_INSTRUMENT_MODEL TEST_REAGENT_KIT SIMILAR_LOINC UNITS EXAMPLE_ANSWERS ANSWER_COMMENTS EXAMPLE_REPORT GENERAL_COMMENTS REFERENCE_INFO NORMAL_RANGE ANALYTE DIVISOR SUFFIX CHALLENGE ADJUSTMENT COUNT PROPERTY TIME_ASPCT TIME_MOD SYSTEM SUPER_SYS SCALE_TYP METHOD_TYP

    Our excel file would have these fields:
    LOINC_NUM COMPONENT PROPERTY TIME_ASPCT SYSTEM SCALE_TYP METHOD_TYP

    I am pleased to report that Well Child Visit document type is now in LOINC !

    Is there a list of how to interpret the source acronym.

    for example what these mean:

    PHS
    UPMC
    UPMC
    DJV.MC
    DJV.MC

    Nice work.
    Is there a way to see which terms have changed because of this harmonization.

    At Marshfield Clinic, we also have a document type of “consent” and have the same problem.
    Has there been a consent term suggested to LOINC (or created)
