The health, social services and regional government reform will establish the new counties in 2021. In the reform the responsibility to organize both social and health services and research, development and innovation activities (RDI) will be part of the new counties’ tasks. Together with 4Front Oy and NHG (Nordic Healthcare Group) MDI is carrying out a study about the current state of social and health service related RDI activities in Finland. The aim of the study is to support the upcoming reform.
The mid-term report of the process was released today. Later on the counties’ views, suggestions and feedback will be discussed in two workshops during fall 2018 and spring 2019. The final report will be released in the fall 2019.
