Most healthcare organizations have sets of local clinical codes which are important to their own mission but are not understood by other hospitals. When patient data is sent to others in your external partner network, they are unable to process the codes in this data. For instance, if you are a NICU, you may have a lot of detail about newborns that is not coded. We provide a terminology matching service to code your terms to SNOMED, LOINC, RX Norm and other critical reference terminologies. If your terms are not in the most relevant international standard, we can add it for you.
If you have mapping needs, we can help with LOINC and SNOMED CT maps. We offer LOINCing services whether you are an academic medical center, a community hospital, a biotechnology company, research organization, or an IVD vendor. Our subject matter experts are here to help you with LOINC mapping or submissions. Research labs, commercial labs, and IVD vendors are now being held responsible for mapping their testing to LOINC by the FDA. For research labs it is a mandate by 2020, for others it is strongly suggested by the FDA.
