The 1st international Workshop on Engineering EHR Solutions (WEES) was held in 2012 in Amsterdam, as part of the Amsterdam Privacy Conference. The workshop treated various issues regarding the design and implementation of large-scale electronic health record (EHR) systems - with a specific interest in security and privacy aspects. Papers presented case studies such as the Austrian National eHealth infrastructure, legal systems, and security and privacy policies for exchanging medical information.

A panel with, among other speakers, prof. Ross Anderson (Cambridge University) and Dr. Deborah Peel (Patient Privacy Rights, USA) discussed the role of governments in constructing EHR systems.

The papers contained in these proceedings are peer-reviewed versions of the papers that were presented at this lively and interesting workshop.
