Abstract [en]

This paper treats issues of transparency and professional strategies as expressed in the Swedish use and debate of national quality registries in health care. It recounts the story of how the registries were first started by medical professionals to improve treatments, then favoured by public agencies striving to enhance quality of care, and subsequently highlighted by new types of actors as a means to enhance efficiency and patient choice. The paper analyses how the meaning and realisation of transparency are accomplished by different actors. It identifies three relevant aspects of transparency – medical, reflexive and public transparency – each introduced during a different period in the development of the registries.
