Letter from LOINC’s new executive director

LOINC Executive Director Marjorie Rallins

We are excited to announce that Marjorie Rallins, a nationally recognized leader in standards and informatics, has been named as the new executive director of LOINC®.

Dr. Rallins comes from the PCPI® Foundation in Chicago, where she was vice president and chief scientific officer. She started with PCPI when it was a program of the American Medical Association (AMA). Please join us in welcoming her to the LOINC community.


I am excited to join LOINC and Regenstrief and the wider LOINC community. I am looking forward to working with you. As we begin a new phase of working together, I wanted to share some background on myself and what inspires and motivates me.

I’ve been working in informatics for almost 25 years with an emphasis in terminology standards and clinical quality measurement. Also, many who know me describe me as curious with a thirst for learning. I fundamentally believe that continuous learning is important to doing great and useful things.

I am here because I am passionate about the power and potential of LOINC and clinical terminologies to improve health and health outcomes. I am here because our community has an unparalleled capability to make an impact. The LOINC community is established and respected in the health care standards realm. We could not ask for a better foundation to tap future potential and opportunities.

Marjorie Rallins, DPM, MS
Executive Director, LOINC
