A digital care pathway is a secure digital service channel for patients in a care relationship with a specialized health care hospital in Finland. It is part of the Health Village portal built in co-operation with the Virtual Hospital project by five Finnish university hospitals led by Helsinki University Hospital. Health Village services make healthcare services available to all Finns regardless of place of residence and income level, thus improving the equality of citizens.
