Read and confirm the receipt of information about Kanta Services in My Kanta
The data of all patients and clients using social welfare and healthcare services are stored in Kanta Services. Now that the wellbeing services counties have began operations elsewhere in Finland, everyone (including Helsinki residents) will be informed in the My Kanta Pages about what the Kanta services are, how the data is used in the social and healthcare services and how they can have a say on how the data are processed.
Reading and confirming the receipt of the information in My Kanta in advance will make handling your matters quicker on an appointment.
