Healthcare markets are characterized from an economic perspective by a few key elements.

There are inherent risks for both consumers and producers in terms of requirements, results, and service costs. Principal-agent issues are common, and information on patients, providers, and other industry participants is highly asymmetric. With activities ranging from research to production to facility management, the healthcare sector covers a wide range of sectors.
