LOINC mapping for lab results

  1. 1
    Has anyone found a good way to map lab results to LOINC codes? We are going to be undertaking this project for Meaningful Use. Some of the labs we send out to have been helpful in providing LOINCs, but to a large extent looking up the codes is a manual process. Any recommendations on what worked at your institutions? Many thanks for your feedback.

    I'm surprised your LIS or HIS vendor is not assisting you with this. I'd first check with them.
    They may also be able to help you write a script that will take care of the majority of the work for this.
    Good Luck
