IMPRO – Improved knowledge base and service optimisation to support health and social services reform

01.01.2018 - 31.12.2023

Research group

Our research team will analyse and optimise social welfare and health care structures, accessibility of care, care paths as well as the outcomes, costs and cost-effectiveness of care, both before and after the health and social services reform. The research is based on data in national social welfare and health care registers and geospatial information. Based on the results, models and planning tools will be prepared to support the service reform. The ‘Siun sote’ joint municipal authority in North Karelia and Kainuu Social Welfare and Health Care Joint Authority will be pilot regions for the project.
