Have you ever described a problem you're trying to solve to someone, only to find that there is an actual tool, device, or trick/technique to solve your exact problem? Even better, has that person then just given you the tool, device, or trick/technique to you free of charge? That's what this page is. We'll be posting files, databases, and other types of knowledge here in the hope that we'll save someone (hopefully more than one person) a lot of time and effort. Check back periodically or follow us on LinkedIn to be notified of the latest posting.

LOINC Lab Categorizations
This file contains the top 2000 LOINC codes which we enhanced with associated lab categories for each code. In all there are 15 lab categories including Chemistry, Microbiology, Hematology, Blood Bank, and Gene Mutation. This file can be used to enhance EHR Order Entry and Results viewing, utilization reporting, or anything else applicable. We’d love to hear how you end up using it. For additional thoughts on its uses, check out our accompanying blog.
This file contains CVX to RxNorm mappings. It's useful if you want to run reports or analytics on immunizations within your institution, but all of your immunizations are in various formats (CVX, NDC, RxNorm). This file will help you normalize your CVX codes to RxNorm. Should you need to normalize from CVX to NDC, that can be found here.
