The Finnish Parliament has approved the new general Act on the Secondary Use of Social Welfare and Health Care Data (Laki sosiaali- ja terveystietojen toissijaisesta käytöstä, based on government proposal HE 159/2017) in March 2019. This fragmentation has, unsurprisingly, lead to a heavy administrative burden for the secondary users of social and health care data by parallel and slow licence procedures with various authorities.
