Occupational Health Care System (OHS) will by law concern every citizen in working age. The role of OHS is work-related and proactive by nature. The co-operation with actors like basic health care and rehabilitation is in key role in keeping people at work. The aim of project TYÖKE is to develop functional integration between OHS and other services in order to manage the wellbeing of people in working age.
