Workshop Prerequisites

  • This is a hands-on workshop to teach the fundamentals of LOINC and provide detailed instructions for using RELMA to map local terms to LOINC codes. Because this will be a hands-on workshop, all participants should bring a laptop computer for the exercises.
  • Before the event you will need to download and install RELMA on your computer. RELMA only runs on Windows. Mac users can run Windows in a virtual machine or with Boot Camp.
  • To get the most value out of this workshop, you should also bring a delimited-text (e.g. a tab delimited or CSV file) or Excel version of your local terms (e.g., your test list). This file must contain the test code and test description. For quantitative measures, be sure to include the units of measure. See Dr. Vreeman's instructions for preparing your clinical source file for mapping.

In-Person Attendees

  • We suggest reserving a room in one of the hotels in downtown Salt Lake City, near the airport, near the E-Center, or near the meeting location. Intermountain has a list of local hotels on its website (see "Guest Housing") with discounted rates.
  • Lunch and continental breakfast will be provided.

Webinar Attendees

  • Information for connecting to the webinar will be provided at a later date.
  • We utilize GoToWebinar for live streaming of events. If you have not previously used GoToWebinar, you may need to download and install the free software. It is available for most computers and mobile devices.
