NameVirtual Clinic - Innovation Center for Oral Health Care
ContactKaarina Sirviö
DescriptionOral health care services are an important part of the ongoing social and healthcare reform. One of the main goals is
to improve the citizen's ability to take care of their own health and life. The importance of digitalisation in health care services needs to be strengthened. Also in oral healthcare, digital service models change traditional service activities and challenge the development of personnel skills and the changing of job images and work structures so that the use of technological applications becomes part of their job.

The objectives of the project are
a) Produce a Virtual Clinic - Innovation Center for oral health care in Northern Savo, in cooperation with oral
healthcare service providers, enterprises and educational organizations.
b) to create a model for the digitization oral health care services.
c) to accelerate the development of the market for digital oral health care services in Finland.
The main objective is not to promote gender equality but is closely related to the main objective of the project:
promoting the equal supply of oral health care services in the North Savo region. The virtual clinic produced in the
project are offered to all genders.
