Title of Collaborative Activity:

Promoting Semantic Interoperability of Laboratory Data Test Results

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM) encourage considering ways that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) could accelerate specifications of LOINC codes that apply to each test result that a lab/test instrument or kit can generate. Availability of the right LOINC codes with each instrument test kit will greatly simplify the correct assignment of codes by a laboratory for sending to clinician's medical record system.
