Inasmuch as domains of LOINC concepts are going to be changed according to the new logic of the domain distribution, some names of LOINC concepts indicating historical facts and requiring the ‘Observation’ domain also should be modified. All of them contain ‘Hx’ as a value of a ‘property’ filed in the source (e.g. 66678-4 Diabetes [PhenX]), but do not have words emphasizing connection with a history inside the names.
We suggest to modify their concept names in the next way:
LOINC old_concept_name => LOINC new_concept_name
‘Ophthalmologic treatment Right eye’ => ‘History of ophthalmologic treatment Right eye’
‘Premature gonadal failure [PhenX]’ => ‘History of premature gonadal failure [PhenX]’
Old concept names (values of a ‘long_common_name’ field in the source) will be added to the CONCEPT_SYNONYM.
please, see the file attached with a full list of such LOINC concepts.
