Background and basis

Social welfare and healthcare reform in Finland

New social welfare and healthcare structure in Finland is under development
Although proposed reform has faced challenges, the need for the reform is evident
The aim of the reform is to offer the population more equal access to services, reduce disparities in health and wellbeing, and contain costs: service coordination, integrated healthcare and social welfare services, and well-managed service chains

Current systems do not support enough new services in social and healthcare … and existing systems are also quite slow and difficult to develop

Need to utilize more effectively the up-to-date technological development
Need to reduce vendor lock-in, which is one slowing down element in the overall development

More flexibility to solution and service design

Nationwide UNA-collaboration

Public organizations plan to improve productivity and efficiency
Based on the agreement between the parties on ICT development co-operation

UNA (lat.) = synchronously, at the same time

20 hospital districts
Several cities
One province (nearly 300 municipalities)
Four ICT in-house companies

UNA VISION Ecosystem-based modular architecture​

Need to build more customer-oriented ICT solutions
Moving towards more modern and open information systems
Need to reduce vendor lock-in, which is one slowing down element in the overall development
Need to build more customer-oriented ICT solutions
Moving towards more modern and open information systems
The architecture and development model keeps up competition and promotes innovations:
– The ability to change is ensured by “real” modularity – modularity makes it possible to replace parts of the system as needed
– Open, documented APIs
– Utilizing best practices from cloud service, microservice architecture and open-source possibilities
The intention is to enable the implementation of a modular ecosystem, which is needed in a customer-oriented and effective social and healthcare service environment
Maintain agility
