Sorry for my confusion.  I thought you meant a case in which code block
A needs the results of code block B as an input parameter, but code
block B needs the results of code block A as an input parameter.  Such a
reciprocal dependency would result in an infinite loop.

But yes, the ability of one code block to call another and make use of
its results is (as Tom mentioned) one of the core features of code block
support in Org-mode.
