Laboratories work with a huge amount of varying tests, results and specimens. In CGM LIFE the abstract type lab value is defined to cover (almost) all possibilities. The standard for indicating the different measurements is LOINC. This code and a series of other information (e.g. test-id or used device) can be used to describe the actual test, result etc. A straightforward mapping to billing systems of insurances (or similar) is not intended with this type.
