Dr. Daniel Vreeman’s primary research focus is on the role of standardized clinical vocabularies and standards to support electronic health information exchange. As director of LOINC and Health Data Standards at
the Regenstrief Center for Biomedical Informatics, he leads the development of LOINC®, a freely available international standard for identifying health measurements, observations, and documents.

Dr. Vreeman is the author of the book LOINC Essentials: A step- by-step guide for getting your local codes mapped to LOINC. He teaches medical informatics at Indiana University.

His personal vision is to help create a seamless network of clinical systems and data to deliver on the promise of optimal health for all.

“A serum folic acid result at one hospital might be called a serum folate result at another hospital – whether a few blocks away or across the country. Or it could be called simply folate at a third facility. Without LOINC standardization, it is like receiving messages in French, Spanish, and Italian when all you can understand is English.”
