Kela organises cooperation meetings and support events for information system suppliers in order to offer information and support, e.g. with respect to the development and specification of the Kanta Services and their functionalities.
Supplier cooperation meeting
The cooperation meeting organised by Kela, is targeted at patient, client data and pharmacy system suppliers. The meeting offers information related to the development of Kanta Services and the new functionalities and forthcoming services.
The objective of the supplier cooperation meeting is to contribute to the expansion of national services as quickly as possible to a timescale consistent with their use by various actors and to have them accessible by citizens through My Kanta Pages. Also other national actors related to the development and maintenance of Kanta Services are invited to the supplier cooperation meetings. Regular members include, e.g. the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare, the Digital and Population Data Services Agency (prev. PRC) and the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health (Valvira).
Invitations to the supplier cooperation meetings and to the question hours for information system suppliers will be sent to the experts of information system suppliers who have submitted their contact details for the meetings to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The events and the related materials are available in Finnish only.
Support related to Kanta PHR
The Kanta PHR data content processing meetings are available on the website of HL7 Finland.
Application developers that develop wellbeing apps joining Kanta PHR get support from the open Finnish PHR chat community where they can post questions and make comments on the subject. The language of the community is English.
Other support for system suppliers
Events are also organised, e.g. in relation to the client data archive for social welfare services and the patient data repository for oral healthcare. An extensive list of support events aimed at system suppliers is available on the Finnish language page.
