Open APIs

Patient basic information

Patient’s basic information

A patient’s basic information integration enables an external system to retrieve a patient’s customer information, such as population data and data of next of kin from Lifecare.


Journal information

Journal information integration enables an external system to bring journal information into Lifecare, and query service events that are recorded in Lifecare.


Risk information

Risk information integration enables an external system to search for patient risk information from a risk register, and bring the patient's microbes and isolation risks.

appointment info

Appointment information

Appointment information integration enables an external system to query appointments booked in Lifecare.

statistical information

Statistical information

Statistical information integration enables an external system to bring patient statistics events, i.e. visits, to Lifecare.

code values information

Code values information

Code values information integration enables an external system to query codes from Lifecare.

medication information

Medication information

Medication information integration enables an external system to query a patient’s medication information registered in Lifecare.


Diagnosis information

Medication information integration enables an external system to query Lifecare's recorded diagnostic data.


Laboratory information

Laboratory information integration enables an external system to query Lifecare's recorded laboratory data.


Ward information           

Ward information integration enables an external system to query Lifecare for information on ward management, for example information on the ward, room, and patient beds.

user rights

User rights

User rights integration enables an external system to check user rights from Lifecare’s user register.


medical history

Medical history

Medical history integration enables an external system to bring a patient’s pre-filled medical history in Lifecare, and get information that the medical history form has been sent to a patient for completion.


Dealing with healthcare IT and especially with clinical information is complex. That’s why we have chosen the openEHR data model.

openEHR is the international standard for building clinical data repositories (CDR) that are future-proof and flexible. openEHR templates used within the Lifecare ecosystem will be published in Tieto’s cloud based development platform for developers.

It enables the best utilisation of international and national clinical information and care recommendations, as well as fast organisation-specific adaptation. It is future-proof and flexible. Transparency creates a genuinely customer-oriented ecosystem.

Patient management HL7 interfaces

HL7 messaging service is a flexible way to transmit information from the Lifecare system to third-party systems.

Lifecare Patient management’s HL7 basic messages belong to the ADT messaging family. All messages sent from Lifecare are ADT messages. The structure of ADT messages is in accordance with the HL7 Finland association’s localisation project (documentation version 2.3)


Lifecare Patient management’s HL7 basic messages:


•                ADT^A01 Login

•                ADT^A02 Ward transfer

•                ADT^A03 Logout/ End of visit

•                ADT^A04 Registration

•                ADT^A08 Updating Patient information

•                ADT^A11 Cancelling login/registration

•                ADT^A12 Cancelling ward transfer

•                ADT^A13 Cancelling logout/ end of visit

•                ADT^A28 Add personal information

•                ADT^A31 Update a person’s information

•                ADT^A39 Connect a person – external identifier

•                ADT^A46 Change external person’s ID



Features and Benefits of Patient management HL7 interfaces

  • Up-to-date information is sent out from Lifecare automatically, and all information is updated in real time in Lifecare.
  • Data is transmitted between systems, and the same information is available on different systems effortlessly and rapidly without any additional actions or separate search functions. This will make work easier, and release time for care work.
  • Up-to-date information can be maintained in one place. The same up-to-date and relevant information is available in Lifecare and third-party systems.
  • Essential data can be transferred to the desired locations in different systems within an organisation.
  • The information produced and distributed is of a definite format, and the structure of data is always the same; the information can be duplicated for different needs.
  • Patient safety is improved in different treatment situations.

You're in good company

"We provide mobile solutions that are dependent on third-party integrations. Therefore, if we want to exist, we have to have good and close relationships with our partners. We have been cooperating with Tieto since 2008 and during these years our partnership has only deepened. Today, we have number of joint customers and we are constantly working together to bring them – and potential new customers – more value." – Juha-Matti Ranta, CEO, Medanets Oy.


The Evidence Based Medicine Electronic Decision Support (EBMeDS) is a program developed by Finnish doctors that combines the latest medical knowledge with patients' health records.

It receives patient information from Lifecare and generates warnings, reminders, suggestions for treatment, and provides links to treatment recommendations. The decision support is connected to Lifecare, where it automatically functions as part of the system.

Reminders are also automatically generated by the drug-drug interactions, contraindications and indication databases, which populate electronic forms and calculators faster when the data can be exported automatically from the patient report.

EBMeDS can be used to address population health management ("departmental decision support").
