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 be valid both in the SOTE organisation register and the controller register.

The reform of the social welfare, healthcare and rescue services will see the responsibility for organising the municipal social welfare and healthcare services transferred to the wellbeing service counties from 1 January 2023. The effects of the changes on the use of the Kanta Services will be reviewed on a wellbeing services county basis in 2022. Read more about the health and social services reform.

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.
