An Organisation is an ORGANISATION.

An Organisation is a unique framework of authority within which a PERSON or PERSONS act, or are designated to act towards some purpose.

Note: this definition is adopted from the ISO (the International Organisation for Standardisation) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical Commission) standard ISO/IEC 6523-1:1998 which defines a structure for a globally unique and unambiguous identification of Organisations and Organisation parts. This is itself referenced by ISO 13940:2015 which defines the concepts needed to achieve continuity of care.
