My Kanta Pages is a nationwide service

It doesn’t matter whether you use public, private or occupational healthcare services. They all use the Kanta Services (electronic prescriptions, the Pharmaceutical Database, the Patient Data Repository and the patient data management service).

You can see your details in My Kanta Pages due to the nationwide system.

Electronic prescriptions are in use in both the public and the private healthcare sector. An up-to-date list of healthcare units using the Patient Data Repository.

The service will show the information and entries on electronic prescriptions  

  • how long the prescription is valid
  • how much medication is left
  • when the medicine has last been collected from the pharmacy
  • dosage instructions
  • who has prescribed the medication
  • when and where the prescription was issued
  • whether the prescription has been renewed.

You can also send a request for a repeat prescription in the service.

The health records shown include

  • patient records and diagnoses
  • critical risk factors
  • laboratory tests and X-ray examinations
  • referrals
  • health and care plan
  • medical certificates and reports.

The records will be displayed in the service for as long as required according to the statutory retention period.

You can find out more about the service with the help of the online school (only in Finnish and in Swedish).

If the records are incorrect

If you notice any errors or deficiencies in your records, please contact the healthcare unit you attended or the pharmacy where the information was recorded. Healthcare services are responsible for recording patient data and correcting any errors in it. You can ask for advice, for example, from the data protection officer or the patient ombudsman of the unit in question. Kela is unable to correct the information.

If the erroneous entry was recorded by a pharmacy in another European country, please contact Kela.
