Category talk:DL-Based Reference Terminology

Jump to: navigation, search


"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."

Quality is not a defining characteristic; most SCT terms are primitive, not logically defined; the objective is not persuasive.
