Provision and use of data was central: “steering by information”
VeTe Vetovoimainen ja terveyttä edistävä terveydenhuoltoSteering by Information: A modern way of looking at the ability to create, research and build up health promoting activities; Health services are knowledge-intensive expert services; New economy and society are based on know-how and utilising knowledge • Challenges: globalisation and across-borders health care, utilising new technologies and knowledge, changing patient roles (e.g. expert patient); Knowledge of and understanding of our clients and the demands of their living environments (determinants); Continuum from documenting current situation (patient records) to revising practices and policies, to strategic plans.
VeTe Vetovoimainen ja terveyttä edistävä terveydenhuoltoManagement, knowledge, information,information society... Municipalities are bombarded by best practices, recommendations, quality guidelines, handbooks, performance indicators, statistics, education, training, letters, surveys, reports, publications, research results, bulletins, newsletters, seminars, development programs, policy guidelines and agendas, standards, etc. Government and national institutes intend these to help municipalities and their professionals to provide good quality services to citizens and, at the same time, to ensure good governance, Information in the form of national programs is meant to guarantee effective and equitable good decision-making and facilitate the processes by which the government‟s (national, regional and local) decisions are implemented. How do we use information to manage health promotion practices locally and regionally in Southwestern Finland?
VeTe Vetovoimainen ja terveyttä edistävä terveydenhuolto Current information & knowledge exploitation The assumption is that professionals are adept knowledge consumers, cf. the Finnish government‟s steering by information policies in the 1990‟s; Our Kaste subproject‟s initial survey targeted at leading local level health and social services functionaries showed that this is not always so; Exploitation of knowledge is weak and more training necessary - 72/80 wanted training on “Management tools targeted at promoting health and wellbeing”

VeTe Vetovoimainen ja terveyttä edistävä terveydenhuolto Results of our survey disclose further that: Implementation of national programs is infrequent, and 46% of respondents would like to get more training on them! Only 4% follow up the results (effectiveness) of health promotion work, but 80% wish to have more training on health promotion methods; The current HP themes reflect a public health - single risk control approach: low-fat, non-smoking, anti-alcohol measures; A majority of the respondents – disregarding their high rank in the organization – did not know what programs there were, or what indicators were used; Only ¼ of the respondents thought that the HP structures were clear in their municipality.
VeTe Vetovoimainen ja terveyttä edistävä terveydenhuolto Similar patterns elsewhereJari Stenvall, HTT Professor, Lappi University, presentation on change management in municipality mergers2007
VeTe Vetovoimainen ja terveyttä edistävä terveydenhuolto Random observations A deep gap between the government‟s policy-makers and the local and regional level implementors: • “according to audits the impact of quality recommendation as part of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health‟s steering by information has been modest” (Office of the Chancellor on National School Health Quality Recommendation), • “Governmental officials also seems to believe that programs, giving ideas and information, can change municipals ways to organize services.” (Liisa Heinämäki, Abstract: Governmental Program Managing and Municipal Steering in Finnish Social Services, 2008), • The municipal level – the implementors – regard only acts and sets of laws compelling, whereas programs and recommendations are considered voluntary, • Too many programs = information over-flow in the municipalities, • The main focus on the local level is on the budget - contents and substance in the services are left to the professionals‟ individual discretion!
VeTe Vetovoimainen ja terveyttä edistävä terveydenhuolto Steering by information is a socio- political control system Health promotion is identified as one of the strategic goals in municipal policy documents, but according to our survey there still is huge demand for training, effective methods, leadership, follow-up, clear structures… It will not be enough to steer resources only, i.e. ensure adequate staff, facilities, materials and budgets by obeying the laws; What is needed is that the municipal organizations assume leadership and management models based on making use of information** The effectiveness of municipal governments depend on how well they are able tomake use of their internal and external data reserves as they adapt to the changesin their environment (A-V.Anttiroiko 2000)
VeTe Vetovoimainen ja terveyttä edistävä terveydenhuoltoFinally... The WHO Nairobi 7th global health promotion conference states that the process (of health promotion) needs leadership • That understands the interdependencies of different causes, • That is able to create strategic alliances across sectoral borders, • That is able to justify the expenditure • That can effect change in the health systems and sustain appropriate infrastructures • That employs wide basis of knowledge associated with many professional and personal qualifications!
