Get to know the stories of some of our people: Meet Janne.

My name is Janne Kaartinen and I am working as a Solutions Architect, mainly for Solita’s Health project. My role involves a lot of pre-sales work.

What’s your biggest passion(s)?

The usual I guess, my family and friends are my top priorities, but I’m always trying to keep an open mind and take possible challenges at work or personal life as opportunities to develop personally and professionally. Funny enough, one of my personal passions is practicing Yoga, which is all about burning away your personal passions and trying to see life and universe as it really is in it’s true essence.

What are you working on? Which team?

Currently I’ve been working on online services that form a significant part of Finland’s national health IT architecture, the Omaolo symptom check-up service and Palveluohjain, the national self-service for reserving medical appointments. I’m also currently involved in projects with HL7 Finland, which is an association that promotes digitalisation and interoperability in the healthcare domain.

What do you love about your job? How long have you worked at Solita?

I consider myself a generalist and a team player balancing my time and interests between business, technology and people. I love the fact that I utilise my varied skill set every day and when I need to I can always find a Solitan more knowledgeable than me to help me with specific problems. I have worked at Solita for 16 years, when I joined we were a group of 60 IT professionals and our Helsinki office was a 2 table room in an office hotel. It’s amazing how little the company culture and values have changed during the years.

How did you get involved with Health related projects? What inspired you?

By accident, really. I have worked intensively in public sector projects and when Palveluohjain was starting as a national development program the project needed an Integration Architect, I raised my hand. I think working in the health care domain is inherently inspiring because of the straight impact our digitalisation efforts have on people’s lives and wellbeing.
