The prescription service and Patient Data Repository included in Kanta Services are already widely used by private healthcare service providers.
Private social service providers can also join Kanta Services and deploy the Client Data Archive for Social Welfare Services.
A private service provider must join Kanta Services as a client and deploy Patient Data Repository or Client Data Archive for Social Welfare Services, if the organisation archives its client and medical documentation in electronic form.
Deployment of Client Data Archive for Social Welfare Services is voluntary for public and private organisations for the time being.
More detailed instructions on the Kanta Services for private social welfare and healthcareare are available in Finnish and Swedish.
