The CAP is one of three recipients of the Laboratory Interoperability Cooperative (LIC) grant from the CDC, along with the American Hospital Association (AHA), and SureScripts LLC. The purpose of the grant is to provide assistance and tools to advance the compliance of laboratories in attaining Meaningful Use in the area of Electronic Laboratory Reporting (ELR) to public health agencies.

Through this CDC grant, the LIC team is providing free one-day LOINC and SNOMED CT® training workshops for hospital staff. The team is also offering a LOINC Resources Webinar—this fast-paced virtual workshop is a two-hour online LOINC and SNOMED CT primer. The objects of these sessions are to:

  • Gain important skills to meet the Meaningful Use criteria for Electronic Lab Reporting to public health agencies
  • Learn how to map LOINC and SNOMED CT codes to your local data dictionary
  • Obtain access to special online tools, resources, and support through the LIC participant portal
