Abstract: 

NLM’s Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications (LHC) has developed four interrelated open source, web-based, JavaScript tools for gathering and processing clinical data: 1) LHC-Forms is a data capture widget designed in partnership with Regenstrief Institute to produce a browser executable form from a stored form description. LHC-Forms supports HL7 data types, repeating groups of questions, survey scoring, validation checks, answer lists, and default values that can be derived from answers given to preceding questions. LHC-Forms can execute any LOINC panel as a form, and generate an HL7 v2 message of the entered data. Try it: https://lhc-forms.lhc.nlm.nih.gov. 2) Clinical Table Search Service is an auto-completion tool that provides an autocomplete menu to fields that take answers from large tables. It is accessed via URLs whose parameters control what table to search, which fields to return to the choice menu grid, and which fields of the selected item to store as hidden content in the input fields. Our implementation provides preconfigured access to many clinical tables: LOINC, RxTerms, ICD-10-CM, many NCBI genomics tables, COSMIC and others. Try it: https://clin-tablesearch. lhc.nlm.nih.gov. 3) An LHC-Form building tool. Try it: https://lhc-formbuilder.lhc.nlm.nih.gov. 4) A JavaScript validator and converter for UCUM units of measure. Try it: https://ucum-validator.lhc.nlm.nih.gov. The four modules can be used together or separately in web applications.
