Valvira supervises and guides healthcare professionals and medical facilities both in private and public sector.
With supervision and guidance Valvira ensures the adequacy of services different healthcare professionals and medical facilities provide. Supervision of healthcare is divided into four sections:
- Ex-post monitoring of individual cases (meaning, for example, handling patient complaints after serious treatment injuries)
- Plan-based supervision (supervision following national– or municipal healthcare supervision plans or internal supervision of medical facilities)
- Guidance and advisement of healthcare professionals and medical facilities
- Issue of requested statements consisting in official documents to other authorities and courts of justice (including medical statements on causality of injuries for use of insurance officers)
