Healthcare and how it is financed is critical to understand for effectiveness in management and operations of health care facilities. Healthcare markets, finance and economics are complex and difficult to comprehend when the economic principles on which they are founded are not understood. These markets have particular characteristics which set them apart from what might be considered ordinary markets and because of these characteristics, the healthcare market does not lead to what economists would call an efficient outcome.
