The workspace for joint testing has been divided into the entities of the Archive of imaging data, Patient Data Repository, Prescription and the client data archive for social welfare services. Logging in to the workspace takes place through the following links:

Please send information to the Kanta Services by email to when the Katso ID is available.

Acquiring Katso IDs

Every person taking part in the joint testing of the organisation must have a Katso ID. The Katso master user of your organisation may issue a Katso sub-ID for those taking part in the testing. A role “user of the Sinetti extranet workspace” must be applied for the Katso Sub-ID, and only the Katso master user can add this role. After that, the Sub-ID can be upgraded into a Katso ID. If the person taking part in joint testing already has a Katso ID, it is enough that the required role is added to this ID. The Population Register Centre (PRC) (, in Finish only) is responsible for KATSO IDs.

When the IDs have been acquired, please send the following information to the Kanta Services by email to

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email address
  • Name of the organisation
  • OID of the organisation

Please send the email with the heading “Käyttöoikeus ulkoiseen työtilaan” (Access right to external workspace) to the address (cc to
