The LOINC Strategic Roadmap provides guidance to the LOINC program and Regenstrief Institute leadership in their continued efforts to continually adapt to the evolving healthcare and terminology landscape. The Roadmap is an overarching plan to support improved operations and decision making across LOINC through defined goals and structured processes and timelines. Key performance indicators (KPIs), related work initiatives for implementing such opportunities, and estimated timelines and performance indicators are identified.
The Roadmap is derived from a synthesis of operational best practices as well as findings and recommendations discovered during LOINC’s strategic planning efforts from October to December 2019. The Roadmap is a decision-support tool designed to guide LOINC’s overarching strategy.
LOINC’s strategic planning efforts used Human Centered Design frameworks and processes to engage over 120 stakeholders in interviews and listening sessions (Discover Phase).
The following strategic roadmap represents the next stage in this process and framework: Design Phase. The KPIs and critical paths illustrated here were developed through group ideation sessions with internal and external stakeholders and are the synthesis of our findings from the Discovery Phase.
LOINC and Regenstrief Institute should continue to incorporate a human-centered design approach when using the tool (Deliver Phase), as well as an iterative methodology to maintaining and revising the Roadmap (Measure Phase). The human-centered design approach places people at the center of the process when fulfilling critical requirements.
