The Logical Observation Identifiers, Names and Codes (LOINC) is a common terminology used for standardizing laboratory terms. Within the HiGHmed consortium, LOINC is used as a central terminology for health data sharing across all university hospital sites. Therefore, linking the LOINC codes to the site-specific tests and measures is one crucial step to reach this goal. In this work we report our ongoing work in implementing LOINC to the laboratory information system, our challenges and lessons learned.
