Abbreviation: RT
Definition: A reference terminology is a set of formally-defined concepts that function as a 'hub' to which codes from different systems can map, without regard to the requirements of a particular use case.
Reference Definition:

  • A terminology in which every concept designation has a formal, machine-usable definition supporting data aggregation and retrieval.
  • A terminology designed to uniquely represent concepts. It does this by listing the concepts and specifying their structure, relationships and, if present, their systematic and formal definitions.
  • A set of atomic level designations structured to support representations of both simple and compositional concepts independent of human language (within machine) (ISO TC 215 - Grain)
