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.
