The transition to wellbeing services counties is historically one of the most significant changes in the structure of Finnish society. Istekki, Solita and Productivity Leap wanted to implement a data warehouse solution for the wellbeing services counties of Pirkanmaa, North Ostrobothnia and Northern Savonia that uses modern technology and innovative thinking, and meets national requirements. The implementation is exceptional in Finland and worldwide. The Social and Health Services Data Pool solution, which can be replicated in other wellbeing counties, saves ten times as much time, money and work.
A major societal transformation took place in Finland when the wellbeing services counties started operating in January 2023. Istekki, an information and health and wellbeing technology expert organisation owned by wellbeing services counties, hospital districts, municipalities and joint municipal authorities, wanted to build a comprehensive raw data platform for its customers.
The platform will enable statutory data management and reporting as required by the Virta project, which is coordinated by DigiFinland. The aim of the project is to provide the management of the counties wellbeing services with reliable and up-to-date information and to support the counties in improving their knowledge management capabilities. To facilitate information management and operational development, nationally common minimum information requirements have been defined for all wellbeing services counties regarding, for example, on reporting on the need, availability, quality, effectiveness and cost of services.
As a result of a tender for the automated data warehouse system, Istekki selected Solita and Agile Data Engine as the solution.
