FCG provides a comprehensive set of knowledge management tools and services for its Finnish and international clients in the health sector. These tools have been specifically designed for health management, and are developed to help organizations to monitor and report on the quality of their services by measuring and reflecting on the needs of the clients.

Our classification products can be used to harmonize and develop health care processes and to access reference data across municipal and provincial boundaries.

These tools facilitate management and resource planning:
