ID cards for non-regulated workers and ID cards for non-clinical social welfare and healthcare personnel

ID cards for non-regulated workers and ID cards for non-clinical social welfare and healthcare personnel are smart cards for social welfare and healthcare service providers. The smart card allows personnel to identify themselves reliably in information systems and services. The card can also be used for example for the encryption of e-mails and when using an electronic signature. The cards have access control technology that can be read remotely.

An ID card for non-regulated workers is intended for social welfare and healthcare organisation workers, who do not have professional practice rights in Valvira’s Terhikki or Suosikki registers. An organisation can get ID cards for non-regulated workers for example for their office workers or information service personnel.

ID cards for non-clinical social welfare and healthcare personnel are intended for the personnel of organisations other than social welfare and healthcare sector organisations. Actors from other sectors that work with the social welfare and healthcare sector can include, for example, information system suppliers and consultants.

ID cards for non-regulated workers and ID cards for non-clinical social welfare and healthcare personnel are valid for 5 years.

The front of ID cards for non-regulated workers and ID cards for non-clinical social welfare and healthcare personnel contain the card’s period of validity, the card holder’s name and their position or job title. The card holder’s photograph can also be printed on the card.

A new ID card must be ordered, if the certificate’s data content or the data printed on the card have changed. Also order a new ID card, if the card is damaged or lost.
