The Memphis Economy

1. The book talks about two types of agglomerative economics: localization and urbanization economics. For a restaurant in Overton Square, would that location be a benefit primarily because of localization or urbanization economics.

2. One of the reasons for agglomerative economies is reduced search cost. Please provide two examples of businesses or other institutions in Memphis that benefit from lower search costs as a result of being in the city.

3. How has FedEx contributed to localization economics in Memphis? Please provide two specific examples.

4. Please list and describe three ways that cities encourage innovation. For each of the reasons, please provide an example from Memphis or another city.

Evidence Based Practice

March 21, 2010, was not EBP’s date of birth, but it may be the date the approach “grew up” and left home to take on the world.

When the Affordable Care Act was passed, it came with a requirement of empirical evidence. Research on EBP increased significantly. Application of EBP spread to allied health professions, education, healthcare technology, and more. Health organizations began to adopt and promote EBP.

In this Discussion, you will consider this adoption. You will examine healthcare organization websites and analyze to what extent these organizations use EBP.

To Prepare:

· Review the Resources and reflect on the definition and goal of EBP.

· Choose a professional healthcare organization’s website (e.g., a reimbursing body, an accredited body, or a national initiative).

· Explore the website to determine where and to what extent EBP is evident.

 

By Day 3 of Week 1

Post a description of the healthcare organization website you reviewed. Describe where, if at all, EBP appears (e.g., the mission, vision, philosophy, and/or goals of the healthcare organization, or in other locations on the website). Then, explain whether this healthcare organization’s work is grounded in EBP and why or why not. Finally, explain whether the information you discovered on the healthcare organization’s website has changed your perception of the healthcare organization. Be specific and provide examples.
