Protecting Finnish society

 

Services for citizens must be provided on an equitable basis across Finland


Public service users are growing in number, while the resources for producing the services are shrinking. The public sector faces a challenge: How to secure services for citizens across Finland despite cuts to public spending. The challenge can be tackled on the one hand by developing secure, user-friendly, multi-channel electronic services that are accessible to everyone regardless of time and place. Public sector partnerships and centralised services are one way to improve the efficiency of service provision.

A new way of thinking

Inventive information system solutions increase efficiency and give the public sector a means to respond to the productivity and usability challenges of today’s increasingly digital world.

New service innovations stem from a deeper understanding of users’ needs. A higher and higher percentage of public services are outsourced, and public sector and private sector services can be bundled into seamless, interactive customer relationships with citizens by focusing on service process development. 

Digitalisation and the growth of the Internet of Things have increased the importance of information security in new service development.


The system adapts to the needs of individual local authorities and supports the structural reform of the social welfare and healthcare sector. Cooperation has run smoothly throughout the project.
