pCLOCD is available for review and implementation accessible from Terminology Gateway . You can learn more about all the changes in the release notes .

We continue to expand the Canadian French translation of LOINC terms with each release and this includes translating new terms and updating existing revised terms. Thank you to the Translation working group for their ongoing support and dedication to this valuable work.

We thank the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) for their continued collaboration on updating the MIS Service Activity Reporting attribute for pCLOCD codes. To find out more about MIS Standards, visit CIHI’s website .
