A New Approach

The CCC System (2.5) offers a new approach for documenting patient care in an electronic health record (EHR) system.

Power Up

The Framework makes it possible to code the data represented in the four levels. It allows the coded Data to be aggregated upward for Big Data as well as dissect the coded data downward to obtain atomic level data elements.


The CCC System is recognized as the terminology of choice for documenting the essence of patient care in the electronic health record (EHR) systems.

Clinical Care Classification (CCC) System is a standardized, coded nursing terminology that identifies the discrete elements of nursing practice. The CCC  System (version 2.5) consists of two interrelated terminologies – CCC of Nursing Diagnoses and Outcomes and CCC of Nursing Interventions and Actions – both are classified by 21 Care Components to form a single system. The Care Components link the two CCC terminologies to each other and enables them to be mapped to other health-related classification systems.  The CCC System consists of a unique four level framework and coding structure for capturing the ‘essence of patient care’ in all health care settings and is used to document a nursing plan of care following the six steps of the nursing process model.
