This paper reports a Japanese spoken dialogue system aiming at support for home health care services. The targets of this system are aged people who live alone with comparatively good health condition. In order to watch their daily health condition, the system executes medical checks through some examinations and conversations. By generating appropriate discourse plan in collaboration with a medical expert program, the system performs a efficient discourse reducing redundant or needless interactions. This paper describes the architecture and the main features of our system, and presents the results for a dialogue experiment.
