What is this?
The objective of the Electronic family centre project is to develop an e-portal and a data bank that contains up-to-date information on the services of families, young people and children, shared national electronic services and guidance to regional services.
The first phase of the project will be implemented during 2021 in cooperation with regions, national actors and stakeholders.
Who are involved in the cooperation?
Representatives of future welfare areas, the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL), the Digital and Population Data Services Agency, the Family Centre Network, the regions’ child and family services working groups, organisations, associations and parishes.
What we do
We will develop the service in cooperation with regions and national actors. The Electronic family centre project group will monitor and guide development and risks and make decisions where necessary.
The objective of the architecture working group is to describe the principle level, conceptual level, logical level and physical level of architecture. The working group will outline the national electronic family centre entity and the relationship between its technical platform and existing regional electronic services. It is also tasked with outlining and planning the implementation method for integrations, the user interface for professional users and residents and the principles for the user services.
The objective of the content working group is to define the users, processes, services and functionalities that the electronic family centre contains in accordance with the outline given by the architecture working group. The prioritisation of content development is also carried out by this working group. The aim is to focus on digitalising functions that make it easier for family centre clients to use services, free up time for family centre work professionals and support family centre work processes. National and regional electronic services will be outlined in the work.
The work of the procurement model working group will focus on necessary procurements and competitive tendering, commitments, the division of costs and contractual structure, taking into account the future welfare areas. Performing a cost-benefit analysis is part of the procurement model working group’s task.
Where are we currently?
During the end of 2020, the project became organised and working group work launched. The project is divided into several working groups that will work in accordance with the objectives set for their working group in 2021. The existing working groups and groups whose work is just being launched include the technical implementation and architecture working group, the content working group, and the procurement model working group.
The aim is to test and pilot the first implementations by the end of 2021.
