It's no secret that laboratories across the country are finding it challenging to accurately encode test menus with proper LOINC and SNOMED CT codes.  The Lab Interoperability Collaborative (LIC) provides webinar based LOINC and SNOMED CT training programs for hospitals and commercial labs, vendors and other stakeholders in the lab reporting workflow.


LIC training webinars are presented by former College of American Pathologists terminology experts and targeted to assist lab staff to properly encode laboratory test results with the most specific LOINC and SNOMED CT codes available.


For only $249 a participant receives:

  • Monthly LOINC and SNOMED CT webinar training sessions including; overview of Electronic Lab Results (ELR) Reporting and Meaningful Use (MU), introduction & demonstration of LOINC and SNOMED CT searching, mapping, and resources, review of LOINC and SNOMED CT examples, and LIC website resource overview.

  • ELR Best Practices Guide - a 60 page step by step guide to terminology mapping.

  • Post webinar support via email and forums.

  • Access to the LIC Resource Library; 57 instructional videos, 75 terminology mapping templates and presentations, 84 documents and links collected from state and local public health departments, and 8 interoperability and connectivity templates and presentations.

  • Discussion forums and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs)

  • Articles and links related to Meaningful Use and ELR topics
