Description

Data aggregation is important for many purposes, but differences in granularity create challenges even when using standard terminologies. LOINC Groups provide a flexible, computable mechanism for rolling up LOINC terms to support aggregation. The Groups spans a variety of domains, including laboratory, radiology, and clinical notes. By establishing an online community and API-based access, we hope to further support their use for many purposes.

Learning Objective 1: Understand how to use LOINC Groups for aggregating patient data with different levels of granularity.
