LOINC defines a way to asks clinical questions which coded answers may 
be represented by SNOMED-CT. LOINC has the worldwide integration and 
SNOMED-CT has the  detailed semantics, and is the leading global 
clinical terminology.  So the both are well matched partners, and as a 
consequence the owners of both coding systems, IHTSDO and the 
Regenstrief Institute agreed to a plan to integrate both coding systems 
to one coding system. This plan defines a cooperative work, which 
started in 2014, and according to this plan, all LOINC-concepts will 
have SNOMED-CT concepts somewhere in 2018.
