Logical Observation Identifiers Names Codes Map to Source Organization

$79 / year

LOINC is a common language (set of identifiers, names, and codes) for clinical and laboratory observations.

Complexity

LOINC is a rich catalog of measurements, including laboratory tests, clinical measures like vital signs and anthropomorphic measures, standardized survey instruments, and more. LOINC enables the exchange and aggregation of clinical results for care delivery, outcomes management, and research by providing a set of universal codes and structured names to unambiguously identify things you can measure or observe.

In LOINC 2.63, the MAP_TO field of the LOINC Table was removed and replaced with a separate
MAP_TO table. The original MAP_TO field was created to store a single replacement LOINC term
number for when a LOINC was deprecated. There are times when there was more
than one possible replacement term, depending on certain conditions. To address this problem a new MAP TO table that was first released with version 2.34. The original MAP_TO field was retained
for a few releases, but was removed from the LOINC Table in version 2.63.
