ready Logical Observation Identifier Names and Codes

Abbreviation:LOINC


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