Yes, I believe a single Meditech EMR ID could have many possible LOINC codes. What would be really helpful is if you had your complete LOINC list with the EMR ID’s mapped to each LOINC. This would likely display the same EMR ID multiple times on that list as the EMR ID’s are mostly generic and not very specific.
I will email you the complete list of EMR IDs so that you can take a look.
Thank you for replying to my post. Below is a small example of the list of EMR IDs. Meditech has 41,878 EMR ID’s for Laboratory and Microbiology, the two departments that I’m tasked with finding EMR ID’s based on LOINC codes.
We use less than 5,000 of these EMR IDs and not the complete 41,878. I can email the complete list should you want it. The column below named “ITEM” is the Meditech EMR ID which we would like to find LOINC codes for. The other column “CATEGORY” indicates whether it belongs to Laboratory or Microbiology. A map of LOINC codes associated with Meditech’s EMR ID’s would be so helpful to every Meditech and LOINC customer.
