Defining a list of LOINC Systems for Microbiology

Laboratory Committee

The purpose of the special topics workgroup on the LOINC System for Microbiology terms is to review the spectrum of Systems used in LOINC Microbiology terms and to develop a proposal for a defined list of allowable System values for new terms. The workgroup will take into consideration the level of granularity needed in different domains, such as hospital laboratories, reference laboratories, and public health, the issue of specimen type versus specimen source, and existing ontologies for laboratory specimens. The proposal will be presented to the LOINC Laboratory Committee in December 2018.

Document Ontology

Clinical Committee

The LOINC Document Ontology provides the framework for displaying clinical documents in an organized, logical way as well as allowing for efficient data retrieval using the structured document properties. This Workgroup will review new Document Ontology axis value proposals from various submitters as well as discuss any LOINC modeling questions that arise related to this framework.
