KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 14 -- Regenstrief Institute and SNOMED International are doing their part to support care teams globally to code and track SARS-CoV-2 testing and COVID-19 cases – and by extension – support clinicians and researchers in their efforts to address its containment.
According to a statement, both have introduced new content to their respective products, a laboratory and health observations oriented coding system in the case of LOINC and a broad spectrum clinical terminology in the case of SNOMED CT.
Created in 1994 at Regenstrief Institute, LOINC helps to facilitate interoperability in healthcare. There was a growing trend to send clinical data electronically between healthcare entities, a practice that is integral today.
SNOMED CT is the world's most comprehensive clinical terminology, developed by SNOMED International.
With the high rate of global adoption for both standards, LOINC and SNOMED CT have taken swift action to make this content immediately available to support those on the ground in tackling the virus.
Regenstrief Institute and SNOMED International mutually recognise the importance of interoperability through standardisation in the pursuit of timely, safe and efficient health care and continue to work collaboratively to achieve this end.
