In 2020, the development of the Kanta Services focuses on the preparation of the national medication list. Especially changes related to acting on behalf of a minor and the utilisation of data with the aid of health data summaries are supported in the deployment process.

The Kanta Services is a national digital service entity for social welfare and health care, and it is also linked with international information systems. The Kanta Services will expand and become more versatile in compliance with the clients’ needs and the development of legislation. The development of the Kanta Services is guided and funded by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health.
