Deployment of the authorisation for outsourcing service providers

Deployment of the authorisation for outsourcing service providers

With the authorisation for outsourcing service provides, the outsourcing service provider saves the patient data directly in the register of the outsourcing service provider in the Patient Data Repository. The deployment of the authorisation requires careful preparation by the parties.

Authorisation for outsourcing service providers is a functionality pertaining to the Patient Data Repository, and it can be used in connection with medical care provided as an outsourced service. The authorisation is a document to be saved in the Patient Data Repository, by which the healthcare service provider acting as the outsourcing service organiser specifies the terms and conditions and recording rights for the service provider in the organiser’s register in the Patient Data Repository.

The outsourcing service organiser and provider agree with one another on the provision and organisation of the outsourcing service. If an outsourcing service wants to deploy the authorisation for outsourcing service providers in relation to the Patient Data Repository, it is required that

  • both parties are already using the Patient Data Repository
  • the parties are familiar with the operating models of the authorisation for outsourcing service providers
  • the functions related to the authorisation for outsourcing service providers are available in the patient data systems used by the parties
  • the parties agree and carry out the deployment test for the authorisation for outsourcing service providers. 

More detailed instructions on the deployment of the authorisation for outsourcing service providers are available in Finnish.
