The market

Health spending per capita in Finland has gone up over the past 10 years and is slightly above the EU average. However, the public spending on health and long-term care as a share of GDP is expected to increase in the future, due to an aging population and slow economic growth.

Therefore, the need of efficiency gains in health and long-term care delivery are in high demand, so these services remain affordable in the future.
