1177 Care Guide moves to a new platform

One of Sweden's largest websites has a new look on a more powerful platform

With 12 million visits a month, 1177.se is Sweden's largest and most visited website for health and information. Here, the general population can search for information, log in to book a health check up, find recipe inspiration or view their own health information. Since implementing Optimizely Content Cloud, the site now has a brand new look and feel on a more powerful platform.

The sites and services that will be on the new platform are:



Media and entertainment

Product used


Increased ease of use and easy to add new features

Thanks to the Optimizely Content Cloud platform 1177 now benefits from increased stability and smoother operations & management for their portfolio of ehealth websites. The websites are also set up to allow for easier developments and updated in the future.

Modern collaboration with stakeholders from 21 different county councils

The work of building the new platform was agile and cross-functional. One aspect that contributed to the complexity of the project is that the client comprised of teams from 21 different county councils with a variety of stakeholders.

A robot that handles migration

Another focus of the project has been to work on time and cost effectively. In addition to a series of automated testers of the site, an administrative robot has been used to migrate all content.

''The care guide contains thousands of pages and it is important that all content is correctly written, both medically and linguistically. The robot minimizes tedious work and eliminates the human factor'', Sebastian Vidovic from Knowit.

Security and accessibility - important components

Accessibility is an important part of building Sweden's largest meeting places for e-health. Both in terms of written design, interface and content. Therefore, the team has tested the sites both on the basis of technical availability but also through user tests with people with different functional variations.

''We are very proud of this project, which is close to Knowit's vision of a sustainable and human society through digitalisation and innovation'', says Sebastian Vidovic.

Safety has also been a top priority throughout the project with advanced and automated testers.

''We also tested load to test the site's capacity. What if 100,000 Swedes get the flu? Then 1177 is the most important channel for self-service''.
