NCPDP supports the use of LOINC codes for assessments and observations for alcohol use. NCPDP utilizes LOINC codes in the HL7/NCPDP Pharmacist eCare Plan.

Level 2 Data Element: Substance Use

IMO supports the proposed inclusions of the Level 2 data class and data element for Substance use.  However, the technical specification cited for the Level 2 submission is missing a number of LOINC codes used in evaluating alcohol use.  IMO notes that the value set for Substance Use Disorder OID: 2.16.840.1.113883.3.464.1003.106.12.1001 specified in eCQM 137 for Alcohol and Drug Dependence, includes codes for evaluating alcohol use as well as other substances.
