LOINC 30th Anniversary Celebration

LOINC® was initiated 30 years ago by the Regenstrief Institute, a non-profit medical research organization associated with Indiana University, to establish a public code system for exchanging laboratory and clinical observations between computer systems.

LOINC has grown significantly, becoming a cornerstone in health data interoperability worldwide. With its widespread adoption in nearly every country, LOINC stands as a testament to our collective efforts in enhancing patient health outcomes. Canada has been using the Canadian Extension of LOINC, pCLOCD, for 17 years. Together, we continue to make a profound impact on the landscape of healthcare.

Infoway congratulates LOINC as they celebrate this milestone with a special virtual event on Wednesday February 14, 2024.
