FinHITS – Strengthening Finnish Health Data ICT for Secondary Use

Join us on our four-year mission to strengthen the Finnish health data infrastructure and promote efficient and secure secondary use of health data, making us ready to launch into the European Health Data Space.

Findata was established following enforcement of the Act on the Secondary Use of Health and Social Data. We have been operational since 2019, making us one of the first health data permit authorities in the European Union.

With the European Health Data Space (EHDS) on the horizon, now is the time to use our unique hands-on experience to further develop our services and make them even more user-friendly and secure for efficient secondary use.

To enable Finland’s smooth participation in the upcoming EHDS, we are launching FinHITS – a four-year project co-funded by the European Union that aims to strengthen Finnish health data ICT for secondary use.

FinHITS will focus on:

  • Increasing the capabilities of our data access applications management system
  • Developing the national dataset catalogue for health data
  • Strengthening Kapseli, our secure processing environment for health data
  • Creating a cross-border gateway to connect with the HealthData@EU infrastructure
  • Elevating the quality of health data

Through FinHITS, we are strengthening the Finnish data infrastructure to ensure efficient and secure secondary use of health data. As a result, Finland is ready to integrate seamlessly into the EHDS.

By sharing our experiences, we aim to help other countries in building their systems, steering clear of needless pitfalls along the way.
