ISO proposal for the creation of a new technical committee on “Health administration”


A proposal to establish a new ISO technical committee on “Health administration” has been submitted by ANSI (USA).


The main objective of the committee will be to develop ISO standards and technical specifications on the effective administration of healthcare entities.


Standardization in the field of healthcare administration will include classification, terminology and nomenclature management practices and metrics that comprise the “business” operations among healthcare entities.


The program of work of the committee will include the development of standards and other standardization documents in the following main subgroups:

1. Primary standards

  • Terminology.
  • A standard that describes and defines a classification system for healthcare administration.
  • Standards that provide requirements for effective healthcare administration taking into account the specifics of healthcare management including financial management and human resources management.

2. Secondary support standards

  • Supply chain management in healthcare field.
  • Risk management.
  • Internal control systems.
  • Asset management taking into consideration the specifics of healthcare facilities.


In case of national interest, BDS can approve the creation of ISO/TC on “Healthcare administration”. If the establishment of ISO/TC is accepted by the national standards bodies – members of ISO, Bulgaria can obtain P- or O-membership in the work of the newly established committee.


The national stakeholders can provide their position on the proposal for this new field of ISO technical activity by 10 of March 2016 to Desislava Gulenova, email:, tel: +359 2 81 74 581.
