The Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) is an international non-profit organization that develops data standards for medical research and other healthcare areas. CDISC produces the CDISC Terminology to aid their efforts.
The goal of CDISC is to develop platform independent standards that aid interoperability of healthcare information systems.
The NCI_CDISC-GLOSS harmonizes the definitions used in various CDISC standards initiatives.
