LOINC Utility


LOINC Utility

The LOINC Utility allows clients to relate LOINC codes with other Lab Result Codes and Lab Component Codes, which is useful for UDS Reporting.


The Product User Manual helps to explain the purpose of the utility.

The LOINC Utility requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 or newer. This free framework must be installed on the machine that will run the LOINC Utility. Installing the framework will require a reboot. If you are installing on a workstation, this is likely not a problem. If you are installing on a server, or if your organization uses Citrix, Windows Terminal Server, or other terminal services, you will need to inform your IT Group or System Administrator as they will need to coordinate the installation and reboot with other users of the server. Generally this means waiting until "non-working hours" to perform the update.

A License Key (sold separately) can be obtained by contacting the NextGen Healthcare Success Community, or by calling NextGen Healthcare Corporate Headquarters at (215) 657-7010.

If you have purchased the LOINC Utility and have not received a license key, please submit a NextGen Healthcare Success Community request and we will provide a license key as soon as possible.

  • The INSTALLER has its own .NET Requirement setting, which was incorrectly set "too new" and requiring clients to have a newer .NET Framework installed. This has been fixed. Software only requires .NET Framework 4.5.2.

  • Users can now enter their LOINC code changes, but save the change list rather than apply it. Later, the User can re-load these changes and apply them during off-peak hours.

  • Utility no longer loads Lab Results and Lab Component data at initial startup. User must choose filter criteria and click REFRESH to query the database.
  • User is asked a "Are you sure you want to save?" question every time they try to save. The message indicates that the update has the potential to make the system very slow, and the update should instead be performed during off-hours usage.
  • The MASTER refresh Button (next to the filter criteria) refreshes both the Lab Result and Lab Component lists. It is the only way to refresh the list data if any of the filter criteria changes. The independent REFRESH features (one under Lab Results, one under Lab Component) are only enabled if the MASTER refresh has updated both lists using current criteria, and that criteria has not changed since the last MASTER refresh. This is by design.

  • Fix for a threading issue on certain platforms preventing the utility from properly initializing, causing a hang.
  • When using TRY mode (TRIAL Mode), you cannot save the changes. Also, the text (TRIAL MODE) appears in the title area.
October 19, 2018
  • Added a drop list to choose a TIME FRAME. ALL TIME, CURRENT YEAR, LAST 2 YEARS, LAST 5 YEARS
  • Additional threading on the Initialization sequence to improve main form startup display times.
  • Changes to Stored procedures to accept BEGIN and END dates, to further limit the size of the dataset being manipulated on the Server Side. Hopefully this will further improve speed when refreshing data.
October 18, 2018
  • Added clustered indexes to sql scripts to improve their speed. Changed Utility to wait indefinitely for SQL database connections and SQL database queries.
October 17, 2018
  • Updated DB scripts change how the data is collected and grouped, improving performance. All columns in the grids are now sortable to aid in finding missing or specific data.
October 11, 2018
  • Removed dependency on external TCX Libraries. Updated EXE and LIB to target .NET Framework 4.5.2 rather than 4.7.1.
