Description

Abstract: We descriptively analyzed CT exam names across sites in a health information exchange (HIE) to identify distinguishing characteristics of those with inconclusive exam names that cannot be mapped to LOINC terms based on their descriptive names alone. We also estimated average times for mapping CTs and contrasted times for codes with straightforward vs inconclusive descriptive names. Our work may assist others in local code description development for improved interoperability.

Learning Objective 1: Understand the differences between CT exam codes that can be readily mapped to LOINC terms based on their descriptive names alone vs. those that cannot.

Learning Objective 2 (Optional): Understand the importance of local code description development to aid in improved interoperability.

Learning Objective 3 (Optional): Understand the time and effort required for mapping CT codes from a HIE to LOINC.

Learning Objective 4 (Optional): Understand the differences in time and effort required for mapping straightforward codes that can be readily mapped to LOINC based on exam descriptive names alone vs codes with inconclusive exams descriptions that require further investigation in order to map.
