SITRA – REFORMING SOCIAL WELFARE AND HEALTHCARE BETWEEN 2007 AND 2019
Sitra has been working towards the reform of social welfare and healthcare since the early 2000s. From the start, the underlying theme of the work has been developing services and the service system in a human-oriented manner, making use of technology, data and best practices. This website features the lessons learned during the projects and instructions for those helping to reform social welfare and healthcare.
The availability, management and distribution of data has undergone a revolution during the past decade. In social welfare and healthcare, this is currently transforming the relationship between professionals and patients.
Our view of health and well-being is rapidly expanding and deepening. At the same time, a number of challenging ethical questions have emerged.
Health and social services must be effective and easily accessible. The attitudes and structures that have been established over decades should not hinder their development.
In the future, successful operators will stand out from the competition by pursuing ideas, and challenging themselves and through social capital.
Money is power, even in the health and social services. The Finnish system of funding services is complicated.
