Reports findings on the perspectives of Swedish physicians since the introduction of the Stockholm model. Subjects were asked to describe their work, how long they had been working and whether they were familiar with the Stockholm model. Questions also focused on professional autonomy, use of diagnostic‐related groups (DRGs), quality of care and competition among health‐care providers. Most of the physicians interviewed reported that the Stockholm model had the advantage of increasing efficiency and productivity, that economic incentives influenced their medical decisions, and medical treatment appears more patient‐focused than before. Finally, primary care physicians report an enhanced status within the medical profession.
