Definition: The assertion of a relationship between the information model and the terminology. Binding can define the semantics of elements and of their value domains (“element” and “value” binding, respectively), and it can be accomplished with natural language or with controlled terminologies (“name” and “semantic” binding).
Reference Definition: The term 'binding' denotes the structural relationship between 'the information model' (modelled using archetypes) and the 'terminology'. There are three main types of terminology binding:
- Semantic Binding
- Name Binding
- Value Binding (openEHR website and documents)
