This work presents initial results of translation, design, development and expert testing of a digitally mediated dialogue based tool for schizophrenia care in Sweden. Dialog+ is a conversational methodology that has been shown to empower patients, promote co-produced and more cost-effective care. Dialog+ was translated and the digital application was redesigned to fit with the local context using human-centered design principles. Initial results of expert user testing, using heuristic evaluations and cognitive walkthroughs, shows promise for the method to work well also in Swedish settings. Initial testing with patients shows promising results. This work exemplifies how care patterns can be improved by considering the information layer of the interaction and creating shared and collaborative working spaces during treatment sessions can help to both empower patients and facilitate a more co-produced treatment plan.
