LOINC codes to be added to national clinical terminology service

The commonly used LOINC codes for laboratory tests, measurements and observations will be added to the National Clinical Terminology Service (NCTS), joining the SNOMED terminology already on offer to Australian software developers and implementers.

The NCTS is administered by the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) and uses the CSIRO's Ontoserver system to provide a single database of clinical terminologies for the sector.

I paid for my first copy of Snomed - on subscription. Have used HL7 with LOINC for some 15 years - like my colleges in New Zealand. We recently turned aour young stock horse colt into a gelding. May be we should do the same to our software suppliers. Cheap and nasty.
