Definition: An ontology designed to support a set of tractable logical computations defined as “description logic,” including classification and imputation.


Reference Definition: A high quality controlled terminology, where each concept has a formal, logical definition, usually provided by an ontology, which is consistent between and within systems, has consistent meaning over time, and has deterministic (computable) meaning. The objective of a DL-based Reference Terminology is to be widely used, where the meaning is useful, able to be communicated-to and understood-by many average health care providers without reference to inaccessible, hidden or private meanings. SNOMED CT is an example of a DL-based reference terminology. (HL7 SAIF-IF)
