What is this?
The Hoidonperusteet.fi service, launched in December 2021, is an online collection of guidelines for the grounds for urgent care. The service intended for all health care professionals is open and available everywhere in Finland. Hoidonperusteet.fi is an easy-to-use, accessible and secure service that also adapts to future health care needs.
The service enables a high-quality, nationally equal and research-based assessment on the need for urgent care. Content based on symptom cards and links to external information sources help health care professionals to assess the resident’s need for urgent care and the urgency based on the symptoms the resident is experiencing. The service does not include reasoning, as the final decision on the need for treatment and its urgency is always made by a health care professional. The service is intended to only be used by health care professionals.
