Health and social services reform and the Kanta Services

Health and social services reform and the Kanta Services

In the health and social services reform, 21 wellbeing service counties will be established in Finland. The reform will also require future wellbeing service counties to take measures concerning the use of the Kanta Services.

In the reform of the social welfare, healthcare and rescue services, the responsibility for organising the previously municipal social welfare and healthcare services will be transferred to the wellbeing service counties from the beginning of 2023. The Kanta Services will be a part of the wellbeing service counties’ digital services and health and social services information management. 

The wellbeing service counties must coordinate and schedule future changes to client and patient information systems in cooperation with the Finnish institute for health and welfare THL and the Social Insurance Institution of Finland (Kela). In the Kanta Services, previous documents generated by municipal operating units must be transferred to wellbeing service county registers. In addition, an organisational change will be implemented in the wellbeing service counties whereby the operations of the previous municipal operating units will be terminated and the wellbeing service county area will begin to use the Kanta Services.
