In the Helsinki metropolitan area, 10% of patients use 80% of health care resources. Most of them suffer from one or more chronic diseases – and often encounter problems in accessing, planning and communicating with treatment providers. The MASSE project aims to create a virtual care management system, the so called Virtual Care Operator (VCO), in just over two years to support the personalised and cost-effective treatment of long-term illnesses. The project involves Aalto University, the University of Helsinki, Erasmus University Rotterdam, HUS, Orion Oyj, Lääketietokeskus Oy, Suomen Fysiogeriatria Oy, PatientSky Finland Oy, Suomen Terveystalo Oy, Klinik Healthcare Solutions Oy and VitalSignum Oy.

In practice, the care management system combines all the data collected from the patient's different care paths onto the same platform. It monitors the development of the patient's condition based on data, coordinates treatment appointments, and collects feedback from the patient. The platform will be built as a joint innovation of the project companies' development work and research, and the platform will be combined with devices, therapies and digital care pathways developed by the partner companies. The virtual care management system benefits actors responsible for organising services, such as hospital districts, municipalities, insurance companies and occupational health care.

Modern Western healthcare's designed on the terms of short and intensive treatment periods, not on the terms of those with chronic illnesses
