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?

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.2011-10-19 at 14:40 in reply to: Analysis of Document Types in an EHR of NIH Clinical Center #16605
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:
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)
Thank you for reply. I will try to follow up on this with the LOINC team.
