Clinical Transformation Committee (CTC)

GS1 Healthcare is focused on helping healthcare providers.


Due to the rapid adoption of digitalisation & technology in Healthcare, the Clinical Advisory Committee (created in 2017) has evolved to the Clinical Transformation Committee in 2021. It consists of thought leaders and early adopters of GS1 Healthcare Standards from the global healthcare provider environment. Their final goal is to drive improvements in patient outcomes by implementing global standards and digital transformation.
