Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes Source Organization

$179 / year

Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC) is a database and universal standard for identifying medical laboratory observations. This dataset shows the LOINC source organization names.


LOINC, which stands for Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes, was initiated in 1994 by Clem McDonald, then an investigator at Regenstrief Institute, a non-profit medical research organization associated with Indiana University. Regenstrief organized the LOINC Committee to develop a common terminology for laboratory and clinical observations because there was a growing trend to send clinical data electronically from laboratories and other data producers to hospitals, physician’s offices, and payers who use the data for clinical care and management purposes.

At the time—and still today—most laboratories and clinical services use HL7 to send their results electronically from their reporting systems to their care systems. However, the tests in these messages are identified by means of their internal, idiosyncratic code values. As a result, receiving care system cannot fully “understand” and properly file the results they receive unless they either adopt the producer’s test codes (which is impossible if they receive results from multiple sources), or invest in the work to map each result producer’s code system to their internal code system

interRAIinterRAIInterRAI holds the copyright to Version 2.0 of the RAI for long term care outside of the US. Supplemental help and contextual information for MDS items in LOINC was derived from Version 2.0 of the RAI/MDS manual, and should not be reproduced outside of the United States without permission of InterRAI. Within the US, Version 2.0 is in the public domain.As a not for profit corporation under the US Tax Code, interRAI holds the copyright to a number of assessment systems, including the Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) for long term care facilities outside of the US (the RAI is in the public domain within the US), as well as the assessment systems for Home Care (HC), Assisted Living (AL), Palliative Care (PC), Mental Health (MH) (outside of Canada), and Acute Care (RAI-AC). The scales, algorithms, and case-mix measures based on these assessment instruments cannot be copyrighted and are thus available to everyone (although the individual items on which they are based are usually copyrighted). The major clauses of our royalty-free licenses follow: * the instrument is not to be changed substantially (excepting individual identifiers and demographics); * the license is limited to non-commercial use (i.e., the instrument will not be not incorporated into products to be sold to others); * no royalties will be charged; * the organization will make appropriate efforts to inform others of the copyright status of the instrument; * interRAI's logo and copyright notice are to appear on the form; * authors, author institutions, and translators (as appropriate) are to be acknowledged in any document where authors would regularly be indicated (e.g., publication of a training manual); * publication of any training manual is limited to the period until a commercially-published version is available; * data from use of the instrument are to be shared with interRAI, subject to existing laws on confidentiality. Commercial use usually requires royalties. In this instance, interRAI may omit the data requirement, but retains the other requirements for a logo, attribution, etc. We will be pleased in any contract negotiations to acknowledge the participation of individuals or organizations which have played a substantial role in getting the instrument to the point of implementation.
