The article explains economic interactions between the healthcare sector actors, as seen from the point of view of the superior - subordinate model and agency theory. The study does not focus on formal approaches. Instead, a description of contractual relationships between healthcare actors has been proposed along with responses to a specific structure of incentives (mostly financial ones). The article is an overview presenting up-to-date results of scientific research which employs the economic agency theory to analyse the healthcare sector.
