HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
In South Karelia health and social services are closely integrated together. The South Karelia District of Social and Health Services (EKSOTE), established in 2010, combines primary and secondary health care, elderly care and social care in a totally new way. The goal of this new organization is to ensure equal access to social and health care services to all citizens in the region, across the boundaries of municipalities. The effectiveness of service delivery will be enhanced thanks to better co-operation of different social and health care organisations. One of the goals in South Karelia is to emphasize the importance of preventive health care and to empower citizens to take more responsibility of their own health and well-being.
Eksote is the official Finnish partner in the RENEWING HEALTH -project. In Eksote's trial Remote patient monitoring is combined with Health coaching. Recent studies show that RPM should be accompanied by human support, such as Health coaching, in order to be effective.
