„Doctors Disciplined“ examines how Austrian
office-based public general practitioners (GPs) are affected
by the administrative governance of Austria’s public health

The introduction of electronic medical records (EMRs) has
resulted in unprecedented changes for GPs‘ interactions
with the insurance, patients, and peers. This book draws on
concepts of disciplinary power and McDonaldization to shows
that working with EMRs creates unique capacities for
monitoring GPs‘ daily activities. These capacities affect
the traditional freelance character of the profession
