Clinical Data Codification
Clinical api

In the realm of healthcare and medical informatics, standardized coding systems are imperative. They facilitate efficient communication across various healthcare platforms, ensuring that data is not only consistent but also accurately represented. Dive into our suite of APIs, tailored to bring standardized coding systems right at your fingertips. From understanding clinical drugs to retrieving pertinent medical codes, we have got it all covered.

Explore our suite of APIs tailored for medical informatics: the SNOMED CT API for standardized medical concepts, RxNorm for clinical drug nomenclature, LOINC for laboratory observations, and ICD-10-CM for comprehensive medical coding. Together, these tools ensure efficient, consistent, and accurate communication across various healthcare platforms.


SnoMed CT 

The SNOMED CT API is an advanced tool that identifies potential medical concepts as entities and associates them with the standardized codes from the Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine, Clinical Terms (SNOMED-CT) ontology. The SNOMED CT API allows for more consistent and accurate communication of medical information across different systems and stakeholders, thereby enhancing patient care, research, and data analytics.

It focuses on discerning entities in the following categories:

  • MEDICAL_CONDITION: This includes the signs, symptoms, and diagnoses associated with various medical conditions. By mapping these conditions to standardized SNOMED CT codes, the API allows for more precise and comprehensive recording of patient symptoms and diagnoses, facilitating more accurate data exchange, and enabling better patient care and health outcomes.
  • ANATOMY: The API also identifies and categorizes parts of the body or body systems and the locations of those parts or systems. This feature aids in the detailed mapping of patient anatomy, which is critical for procedures like surgeries, diagnosis, and other treatments. The anatomical terms and their associated SNOMED CT codes are universally understood, ensuring consistency across healthcare systems.
  • TEST_TREATMENT_PROCEDURE: This pertains to various procedures, tests, and treatments utilized for the diagnosis, management, or mitigation of medical conditions. By linking these procedures to the standardized SNOMED CT codes, the API promotes a more detailed, structured, and consistent recording of patient care activities.


RxNorm is a standardized nomenclature for clinical drugs and drug delivery devices, developed and regulated by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM). It provides unique identifiers (RxCUIs) for medication terms to enable efficient, reliable communication of medication information across different software systems & platforms.

In essence, RxNorm serves as a bridge between different terminologies for the same concept, making it possible to translate between the various “languages” used by different drug databases.

  Categories that RxNorm typically handles include:

  • RxNorm category: It identifies & categorizes entities under the MEDICATION category. It not only detects the entities but also their associated info classified as attributes or characteristics.
  • RxNorm types: Types of Entities in the Medication Category:
    • BRAND_NAME: This refers to the trademarked name given to a medication or therapeutic agent by its manufacturer. For example, “Advil” is a brand name for Ibuprofen.
    • GENERIC_NAME: This is the non-proprietary name of the medication, often referring to the main ingredient or the chemical composition of the drug. i.e., “Ibuprofen”.
  • RxNorm traits
    • NEGATION: reference suggesting that the patient not currently taking a detected medication.
    • PAST_HISTORY: indication that the patient had taken the medication in the past, prior to current medical encounter.
  • RxNorm attributes
    • DOSAGE: prescribed amount of the medication that the patient should take.
    • DURATION: length of time over which the medication should be taken.
    • FORM: physical form of the medication, such as a tablet, capsule, liquid, etc.
    • FREQUENCY: how often the medication should be administered.
    • RATE: indicates the speed at which the medication should be administered (for infusions or intravenous medications).
    • ROUTE_OR_MODE: how the medication should be administered, i.e., orally, intravenously, etc.
    • STRENGTH: concentration of the active ingredient and its strength. i.e., “200 mg” for an Ibuprofen tablet.

Logical Observation Identifiers Names & Codes (Loinc) 

Clinical API that inspects laboratory test orders and results. Unlock medical laboratory observations for identifiers, names and codes using our NLP.

LOINC is a system for identifying health measurements, observations, and documents. The LOINC API is an interface that allows for interaction with the LOINC database, enabling applications to search and retrieve LOINC codes and their associated information. Key categories in LOINC include:

  • LABORATORY_TEST: This refers to any laboratory measurement or observation, ranging from a simple blood glucose test to complex genetic testing. LOINC provides unique identifiers for each of these tests.
  • CLINICAL_REPORTS: These are documents like pathology reports, discharge summaries, or radiology reports. LOINC assigns unique identifiers to these types of reports, enabling their recognition and handling across different systems.
  • OBSERVATIONS: These represent measurements or simple observations related to a patient. For instance, body temperature, heart rate, or patient’s mood. Each of these observations has a unique LOINC code.
  • SURVEYS: LOINC also covers surveys and questionnaires, which are frequently used in research and patient-reported outcome measures.


Highly accurate API for medical coding that extracts billable ICD-10-CM and PCS codes from patient encounter documents at the click of a button.

The International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Edition (ICD-10), is a coding system developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) for the classification of medical conditions and procedures. It provides a common language that allows healthcare professionals to share and understand patient data across different healthcare systems and platforms. Key categories in ICD-10 include:

  • ICD-10 category: It identifies and categorizes entities under the MEDICATION category. It not only detects the entities but also their associated info classified as attributes or characteristics.
  • ICD-10-CM attributes:
    • DIRECTION: Terms indicating orientation – left, right, medial, lateral, upper, lower, posterior, anterior, distal, proximal, contralateral, bilateral, ipsilateral, dorsal, or ventral.
    • SYSTEM_ORGAN_SITE: The anatomical location associated with the medical condition.
    • ACUITY: Characterization of the onset or duration of a disease, i.e., chronic, acute, sudden, persistent, or gradual.
    • QUALITY: Any descriptive attribute of the medical condition, such as its stage or grade.
  • Time Expression Category: The TIME_EXPRESSION category captures entities associated with time, including dates and time-related expressions such as “three days ago,” “today,” “currently,” “day of admission,” “last month,” or “16 days.”
  • ICD-10-CM traits:
    • DIAGNOSIS: A recognition of a medical condition based on an evaluation of symptoms. They can range from common conditions like hypertension (I10) to Type 2 diabetes with diabetic peripheral angiopathy (E11.51).
    • HYPOTHETICAL: A reference indicating that a medical condition is stated as a possibility or supposition.
    • LOW_CONFIDENCE: A reference suggesting that a medical condition has been mentioned with significant uncertainty.
    • NEGATION: A sign that a medical condition is absent.
    • PERTAINS_TO_FAMILY: An indication that a medical condition is associated with the patient’s family, rather than the patient themselves.
    • SIGN: A medical condition as reported by the doctor.
    • SYMPTOM: A medical condition as reported by the patient.
    • PROCEDURES: This includes codes for surgical, therapeutic, and diagnostic procedures.

Explore each of these tools to harness the power of standardized medical coding and enhance healthcare outcomes. We’re here to usher you into the era of precision and efficiency in medical informatics.
