Deployment of the Patient Data Repository

Deployment of the Patient Data Repository

After the necessary preparations have been made, the healthcare service provider can start the service deployment stage, which includes sending the deployment application and carrying out the deployment test.

The service provider needs to carry out careful preparations in order to deploy the Patient Data Repository. For example, the service provider must ensure that their licence information is up-to-date, they must have a Kanta-compatible system in use, and they must become acquainted with the operating models of the Patient Data Repository. 

Kela provides centralised support and guidance to the organisations deploying the service. Kela, e.g. organises training and produces support material. 

After the necessary preparations have been made, the service provider shall start the deployment stage. The service provider shall complete and send the deployment application for the Patient Data Repository in Ekstranet, the online service for Kanta Services. In connection with the application, the client shall also accept the service description of the Patient Data Repository and send their commitment to becoming a client of the Kanta Services in the case of first deployment of a Kanta service.

After the application has been sent, the client shall still carry out the agreed deployment test in order to ensure that the deployment will run smoothly. 

More detailed instructions on the deployment of the Patient Data Repository are available in Finnish.
