Deployment of the client data archive for social welfare services

Deployment of the client data archive for social welfare services

The process of deployment of the client data archive for social welfare services in the Kanta Services progresses in stages and will take about 6 months, depending on the initial situation of the organisation.

For the deployment of the client data archive for social welfare services, organisations need to carry out several preparatory tasks. The preparations are made in cooperation with the information system supplier, the management of the social welfare organisation, information management, the data protection officer, document management, and professionals carrying out client work. The organisation is supported by Kela and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare THL in the preparations for deployment.

The duration and contents of the process depend on the initial situation of the organisation and how the organisation will start utilising the client data archive for social welfare services. 

Kela and THL are responsible for the definitions for the Kanta Services in social welfare. The information system suppliers are responsible for ensuring that the system is compatible with Kanta.

More detailed instructions on the deployment of the client data archive for social welfare services are available in Finnish and Swedish as the service is only available in these languages.
