I work for a laboratory that is offering a UTI panel to a new clinic that is using LOINC to create orders in the EHR. This clinic is utilizing Athena as their EHR. They need an LOINC to create the order within Athena that is true to the test being offered.
The first code submitted was not orderable. A second code has been submitted and is orderable. While we wait to see if Athena will accept the code, I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for some LOINC resources specific to creating orders from the clinic side.
Potentially there is not a code for the specific test being run. The code needed is for a UTI screen with reflex to PCR on positives. If there is no code, what is the process for creating one?
