The aim of the EFMI special topic conferences (STC) is to provide a forum to discuss achievements and actual experiences on specific topics in Medical Informatics in Europe (MIE). The theme of the STC 2012 is the implementation experience of large scale eHealth projects. These large scale projects can be described by size, effects, complexity, duration etc. eHealth projects contribute to the success and sustainability of the future health care system. Large scale projects are mostly accompanied by small and dedicated initiatives and solutions. The objective of the conference is to highlight large scale projects supporting the use of information and communication technology (eHealth) at national, regional, and especially at international level. It will result in requirements for national and regional solutions for medical informatics and health information management.
