Indiana University School of Medicine to Host with Six Feet Up
April 07, 2008
Indiana University School of Medicine chose Six Feet Up to host their Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC®) website. The purpose of the LOINC® database is to facilitate the exchange and pooling of results, such as blood hemoglobin, serum potassium, or vital signs, for clinical care, outcomes management, and research.
LOINC® is a voluntary effort housed in the Regenstrief Institute, an internationally respected non-profit medical research organization associated with. LOINC was initiated in 1994 by the Regenstrief Institute and developed by Regenstrief and the LOINC committee as a response to the demand for electronic movement of clinical data from laboratories that produce the data to hospitals, physician's offices, and payers who use the data for clinical care and management purposes.
Indiana University School of Medicine relied on Six Feet Up's customized server setup and other professional services to facilitate the transfer. Six Feet Up also assisted in helping get their Zope instances and website setup.
