LOINC Mapto API


The LOINC Mapto API is a web service for accessing the mappings of LOINC concepts. Users can access the web service either through the RESTful interface or via the SOAP interface.

RESTful Interface

The RESTful interface has two resources:

  • https://rxnav.nlm.nih.gov/REST/LOINC/mapping?id=someID

  • https://rxnav.nlm.nih.gov/REST/LOINC/version

Example
https://rxnav.nlm.nih.gov/REST/LOINC/mapping?id=13677-0

<loincMapping>
  <inputId>13677-0</inputId>
  <mappedId>29506-3</mappedId>
</loincMapping>


https://rxnav.nlm.nih.gov/REST/LOINC/version

<loincMapping>
  <version>version 2.44; June 2013</version>
</loincMapping>

SOAP interface

The WSDL defines the SOAP interface. The SOAP web service has two functions:

getMapTo ( id )
   where id is a LOINC identifier.

getMapTo returns an array of LOINC identifiers if the original identifier was remapped.

getVersion()

getVersion returns the LOINC version being used.

Examples

getMapTo(13677-0)

(returns)

  {29506-3}

getMapTo(48442-8)

(returns)

  {44113-9, 44114-7, 48450-1}


getVersion()

(returns)

  version 2.44; June 2013
