The Nutrition Care Process and Terminology Committee and Interoperability and Standards Committee are working together to provide resources to incorporate the NCP Terminology in electronic health records. Per Federal US Health and Human Services mandate, clinical terminologies in Electronic Health Records (EHRs) must be in SNOMED and LOINC. The corporate and developer subscriptions for the eNCPT provide a downloadable spreadsheet that includes the currently published NCPT, SNOMED, and LOINC mappings.
