Economics can be defined as the science concerned with the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. In essence, it is the study of the material welfare of humankind (Apollo Group, 2010). Economics in health care is concerned not only with the financial aspects of the system, but how those financial elements impact patient care.
Supply and Demand
Supply and demand is perhaps one of the most fundamental concepts of economics and it is the backbone of a market economy. Demand refers to how much (quantity) of a product or service is desired by buyers. Supply represents how much the market can offer and the correlation between price and how much

Health Care History
Throughout the history of the United States, the economics of the health care system has experienced many changes. There are many factors to consider regarding the drive behind many of the changes within the health care system. Medical and surgical technologies are some factors, which relate to the changes in health care. Besides these factors, allocating sources to fund health care services has always been the most critical factor. One might consider the economic term supply and demand when looking at the history of health care economics and the primary funding source. Health care funding has always been a challenge and will continue to be a barrier due to the

Doctor Debra Beazley
The forces, which have affected the development of the health care system in the United States, are economics, technology and legal. The functioning of the health care system in economic development has become an influential issue. Health care is a predominant industry in the United States and is expected to develop further. Health care performance influences the economic growth in several rural communities. The health care system could be an influential organization and supplier of economic development or unimportant segment of the local economic model (Shinberger, 2005

Their efforts focus on improving both the health of everyone in America, and their health care—how it's delivered, how it's paid for, and how well it does for patients and their families. As they invest in improving systems through which people receive care and in fostering environments that promote health and prevent disease and injury, the goal is to achieve comprehensive, meaningful and timely change.

losing money. ( Rath, 2007) Polls show that health insurance benefits offered are an important consideration when looking for a new job. When the economy picks up it will get increasingly difficult for small businesses to attract new and retain your current staff if there is not a competitive health coverage policy.
When a business has five or fewer employees, the typical health coverage strategies really break down. The economics of a pooled association plan may not make sense because of membership fees. Even many PEOs (professional employer organizations) shy away from employers with under 6 employees, again because of the economics.

Health care is a finite or limited resource. It is a service that everyone demands at some point in their life, but not everyone can receive it at the same time or of the same quality. If 100 people stormed the emergency room at the same time and there are only 10 doctors to treat them, there will be some sort of rationing based on who needs to be seen first.

While in old Keynesian economics the models are often considered to be without rational expectations. New Keynesian models are commonly taught in graduate schools because they capture how
