Public Health Information Network (PHIN) - PHIN MS

These organizations operate a wide variety of public health information systems and need to reliably exchange critical and sensitive data among their disparate systems. Rather than attempting to integrate the various systems, organizations typically create messages that can be exchanged over the Internet with a variety of partners. These messages are comprised of standard content and vocabulary, and are implemented in a range of formats, including HL7, XML, image files, CSV files, and so on.

The effective exchange of these messages necessitates a bi-directional and secure messaging platform that can provide a common approach to security requirements (such as encryption and authentication), as well as a standard method for addressing and routing content. PHINMS User Group Meeting PHINMS will hold a PHINMS User's Group call on February 6th, 2014, at 1pm EST. Public Health Information Network (PHIN)

LOINC. Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC) is a database and universal standard for identifying medical laboratory observations.


It was developed and is maintained by the Regenstrief Institute, a US non-profit medical research organization, in 1994. LOINC was created in response to the demand for an electronic database for clinical care and management and is publicly available at no cost. It is endorsed by the American Clinical Laboratory Association and the College of American Pathologists. Since its inception, the database has expanded to include not just medical and laboratory code names, but also: nursing diagnosis, nursing interventions, outcomes classification, and patient care data set. Function[edit] LOINC applies universal code names and identifiers to medical terminology related to electronic health records. LOINC is one of the standards for use in U.S. Format[edit] A unique code (format: nnnnn-n) is assigned to each entry upon registration. Uses[edit] See also[edit] RELMA — LOINC. Regenstrief LOINC Mapping Assistant The Regenstrief Institute provides a Windows-based mapping utility called the Regenstrief LOINC Mapping Assistant (RELMA) to facilitate searches through the LOINC database and to assist efforts to map local codes to LOINC codes.


Like the LOINC database, this program is also available for free. Should I Download RELMA or Just Use the Online Search Application? Short Answer: If you are curious about LOINC, and just want to explore, the best place to start is probably the web-based LOINC search application.If you want to map your local codes to LOINC, we recommend downloading the full version of RELMA. Longer Answer: It depends on what you want to do. Download Full Version of RELMA The full version of the RELMA program can be installed only on computers running Microsoft Windows.

SNOMED CT. SNOMED CT[a] or SNOMED Clinical Terms[2] is a systematically organized computer processable collection of medical terms providing codes, terms, synonyms and definitions used in clinical documentation and reporting.


SNOMED CT is considered to be the most comprehensive, multilingual clinical healthcare terminology in the world.[3][non-primary source needed] The primary purpose of SNOMED CT is to encode the meanings that are used in health information and to support the effective clinical recording of data with the aim of improving patient care. SNOMED CT provides the core general terminology for electronic health records. SNOMED CT comprehensive coverage includes: clinical findings, symptoms, diagnoses, procedures, body structures, organisms and other etiologies, substances, pharmaceuticals, devices and specimen.[3] SNOMED CT provides for consistent information interchange and is fundamental to an interoperable electronic health record.
