Services and use

In 2020, the development of the Kanta Services focuses on the preparation of the national medication list.
The Kanta Services to be made available to the social welfare services are the client data archive for social welfare services and the citizen’s online service My Kanta Pages.

All prescriptions must be issued electronically. A prescription may be issued in paper format only during disruptions and in exceptional situations. The pharmacy will record the paper prescription in the Prescription Centre in connection with dispensing it.
Kelain is a service that enables issuing of electronic prescriptions. It is a good alternative for private use by a doctor or dentist who is not employed by the healthcare service or who does not operate as an independent professional practitioner.
In order to provide guidance in the use of My Kanta Pages, it is advisable that social welfare and healthcare professionals know which information can be viewed by visitors to the service.
Personal Health Record is a Kanta service in which users may enter information on their wellbeing. In future users may give their consent to social and healthcare service providers for the use of the data in support of decisions concerning their health and wellbeing, as well as an aid for diagnostic purposes.
The Kanta Services have increased transparency in the processing of data. Previously, it was not easy for patients to access information that has been recorded on them in the healthcare services. Now this data can be checked in My Kanta Pages. The service also makes it possible to see when and which healthcare unit has processed the information.
