Care for patients with multimorbidity and long-term complex needs is costly and with demographic changes this group is growing. The research project Dignity Care addresses how to improve the care for this patient group by studying how a conceptual shared digital care plan for complex clinical pathways can guide and support cross-organisational care teams. This paper presents the user-centred design process for the digital care plan development. Panels of patients and health care professionals will participate in co-creation user workshops and simulation of complex patients’ pathways. The main contribution from this work is recommendations for how to actively involve user groups in digital health development, applying a partly remote approach of user-centred design methodology during the Covid-19 pandemic.
