Electronic Health Services

This page contains information on electronic health services available in the Town of Kuusamo along with direct links to these services.

Omaolo is a web service, through which you can, for example, make a symptom assessment of your condition and send it further to a health care professional. This service avoids queuing and unnecessary treatment visits and appointments.

In Kuusamo, there are three Omaolo symptom assessments currently in use: corona, urinary tract infection and general symptom. Omaolo provides the client with a recommendation for action based on those symptoms chosen by him/her. A recommendation can be a self-care instruction or a request to take contact with a medical professional either by telephone or through the Omaolo web service. Recommendations are based on the most up-to-date scientific evidence and on the Current Care Guidelines (Käypä hoito -suositukset).

Electronic Health Check

A health check report based on about forty questions gives an estimate of expectancy of life and the most common disease risks along with a summary of ways of life affecting health and ways to influence them. Weekly e-mail messages of the health and well-being coaching programme encourage and guide the service user towards a better life. 

Coaching is available from the following important areas of life: 

  • weight management 
  • exercise 
  • nutrition 
  • sleep 
  • skills for happy life 
  • improving a couple relationship 
  • moderate alcohol consumption
