Questions and answers about health data in the Kanta Services.

Your visit may have taken place before the healthcare unit joined Kanta Services, in which case the information has not been recorded in My Kanta Pages. Old patient data cannot be viewed in My Kanta Pages.

The archiving of patient data is expanding in stages, so that all your treatment records are not necessarily visible in My Kanta Pages.

If no information is shown for a visit, the reason may also be that the details have not yet been approved or entered by the healthcare unit. The delay in entries to the Kanta Services varies between organisations.

If your treatment details do not show in My Kanta Pages within a reasonable time, you can ask the healthcare unit in question for more information.

 

​​​​​​

Laboratory results are displayed in My Kanta Pages under 'Terveystiedot'. The results are not always shown under the sampling date, but under the date of the service event to which the tests relate. If a laboratory test is booked on a continuous referral, all the results may be under the date of the referral. Your continuous referral may also date back to the time before the healthcare unit joined Kanta Services, in which case the information has not been entered in My Kanta Pages. In this case, a new referral should be issued and entered in Kanta.

There may also be a delay in entering the records in the Patient Data Repository. The delay varies between organisations. It is also possible that your doctor wants to discuss the results with you before showing them in My Kanta Pages.

If your test results do not show in My Kanta Pages within a reasonable time, you can ask the healthcare unit in question for more information.

 

You will see data in My Kanta Pages after the healthcare unit that treated you has joined the Patient Data Repository and started entering patient data in it.

Patient data that was entered in the patient data system before the healthcare unit joined the Patient Data Repository will not be shown in My Kanta Pages.

In My Kanta Pages, you can see the vaccination records entered after the healthcare unit joined Kanta Services.

There is a separate page for vaccinations in My Kanta Pages (Terveystiedot > Rokotukset).

The Vaccinations page may show vaccination records entered into Kanta Services in a new way.  Only some of the healthcare organisations have a patient data system in place that allows for entries in the new way. The records will gradually appear on the Vaccinations page as you receive the vaccine in a unit that already uses the new way of recording the data.

Details of some of the vaccinations you have received may have been recordedin texts entered during your treatment visits. You can search for this information in My Kanta Pages using the search facility on the 'Terveystiedot' page.

 

In My Kanta Pages, you can record your living will and organ donation testament. Declarations of intent are recorded in the Patient Data Repository from where they can be accessed by healthcare units.
