Abstract: In 2003 Oulu was already a technology city and had set a target of becoming a pioneer in the development of technological well-being products and services. One of the most successful services is the Oulu Self-Care, which was planned, implemented and piloted in the Kasio Project (2007-2009). The aims of the project were to develop self-care services along with an environment for new product and service testing with the participation of citizens and professionals. The Self-Care platform was opened to all citizens in 2010 as an internet-based portal. It focuses on life style and disease prevention. It also includes self-care services for chronically ill patients, which implement the Chronic Care Model developed in another project called PISARA with the cooperation of other municipalities in Finland.
