This paper reports on the process of the Swiss national strategy to define and implement eHealth. Switzerland is a federal political organization with 26 cantons that are autonomous for the health legal framework. Switzerland must also provide support for four national languages. Thus, this experience addresses many challenges that are experienced at the European level in a much larger scale. Also, Switzerland benefits from the major projects ongoing in Europe, such as epSOS, to define its own strategy.
