    The Politics of Technology: On Bringing Social Theory Into Technological Design.Marc Berg - 1998 - Science, Technology and Human Values 23 (4):456-490.
    New approaches in the design of information technologies for work practices are drawing upon theories from sociology, anthropology, and social philosophy. Under the labels of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Participatory Design, work is done to "neturn" to design insights gained in the social study of the use of technological artifacts. Aftera brief introduction of these developments, the article zooms in on those authors for whom "better" technologies refer to hopes for more democratic and more worker-oriented workplaces. How do these approaches (...)

    Of Forms, Containers, and the Electronic Medical Record: Some Tools for a Sociology of the Formal.Marc Berg - 1997 - Science, Technology and Human Values 22 (4):403-433.
    Formal tools are attributed central roles in organizing work within many modern workplaces. How should one comprehend the power of these tools? Taking the medical record as an example, this article builds on recent calls to overcome the dichotomy between the formal and the informal and proposes an understanding of the generative power of such tools that does not attribute mythical capacities to either tool or human work. To do so, it is important to look both at the history offormal (...)

    Guidelines for Appropriate Care: The Importance of Empirical Normative Analysis.Marc Berg, Ruud ter Meulen & Masja Van den Burg - 2001 - Health Care Analysis 9 (1):77-99.
    The Royal Dutch Medical Association recently completed a researchproject aimed at investigating how guidelines for `appropriatemedical care' should be construed. The project took as a startingpoint that explicit attention should be given to ethical andpolitical considerations in addition to data about costs andeffectiveness. In the project, two research groups set out todesign guidelines and cost-effectiveness analyses for twocircumscribed medical areas. Our third group was responsible for the normativeanalysis. We undertook an explorative, qualitative pilot study ofthe normative considerations that played a (...)

    The Electronic Patient Record as a Meaningful Audit Tool:Accountability and Autonomy in General Practitioner Work.Marc Berg, Irma van der Ploeg & Brit Ross Winthereik - 2007 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 32 (1):6-25.
    Health authorities increasingly request that general practitioners use information and communication technologies such as electronic patient records for accountability purposes. This article deals with the use of EPRs among general practitioners in Britain. It examines two ways in which GPs use the EPR for accountability purposes. One way is to generate audit reports on the basis of the information that has been entered into the record. The other is to let the computer intervene in the clinical process through prompts. The (...)

    Embodying the Patient: Records and Bodies in Early 20th-Century US Medical Practice.Marc Berg & Paul Harterink - 2004 - Body and Society 10 (2-3):13-41.
    This article discusses the emergence of the modern body, as portrayed by Foucault, in early 20th-century medical practice. Specifically, this article argues how the coming of the patient-centered record in the United States was a pivotal event in this emergence. We argue how the shape and functions that the record acquired during this period was fundamentally intertwined with the new shape that both the patient’s body and medical institutions acquired. We zoom in on two specific examples: the re-historizing and subjectifying (...)
