Clinical Building Blocks (CBBs) are "detailed data specifications of medical concepts in a given context. Sometimes this concerns a single element (e.g. nationality), sometimes more than one element (e.g. medication), but these data specifications remain relatively small. The aim of the clinical building blocks is to specify precisely which terminology can be used without thereby implicitly choosing a given technical standard, reference model, or platform. This is because every care establishment does the latter for themselves. In this sense, therefore, the building blocks are 'agnostic' or 'neutral' (NFU, NICTIZ, 2015)."
