Change situations in public health and social services

Change situations in public health and social services

The continuity of Kanta Services contacts must be taken into account in change situations in public health and social services. The service enabler’s data must also be valid in the SOTE organisation register.

A change situation of an enabler of health and social services in the public sector may include, e.g.:

  • reorganisation of the service provision model, e.g. incorporation
  • establishment of a new joint municipal authority or the dissolution of an existing one
  • a change due to a municipal merger.

The completion of the change process is described on the page Implementation of a reorganisation.

Further information and instructions on the impacts of change situations on the clients of the Kanta Services can be requested by email from kanta@kanta.fi.
