VideoVisit has been doing co-operation with City of Helsinki’s Service Centre unit since 2014. The need for virtual care services emerged from Helsinki’s home care department where a limited amount of home care service resources couldn’t meet the need of the growing number of home care clients. In addition to this, city of Helsinki wanted to allocate additional time and attention to those clients whose condition demanded more care.
Today virtual care is a vital part of Helsinki’s healthcare strategy. Virtual care is used for virtual home care visits as well as for mental rehabilitation and physiotherapy.
