Abstract

The paper presents the results of semiautomatic mapping of Russian laboratory terms to LOINC. Two clinics (A and B) and a laboratory service participated in the project. We were able to map 86% (Clinic A) and 87% (Clinic B) of laboratory terms. The required effort was reasonable and the price of mapping and maintenance was considered as relatively low. We established LOINC as a canonical coding method for a laboratory data exchange. This provided semantic interoperability for the data exchange process.
