Summary:
The purpose of this study was first to determine factors associated with intellectual reputation. Second, the study aimed to examine intellectual reputation in relationship to doctoral graduates’ productivity in the biomedical sciences and in relationship to organizational biomedical advancement and productivity. Third, the study aimed to visualize a spatial relationship between intellectual reputation and local organizational biomedical advancement and productivity. Finally, a simulated research-based model was proposed for understanding hospital productivity. The study used quantitative analysis and The Geographic Information System GIS. The findings from this study suggest that university’s research intensity, having a Nobel Laureate on staff, Hirsch Index of the most prominent researcher on staff, scientific patent, scientific publications, and affiliation with multiple countries are good predictors of intellectual reputation. Correlation analysis suggests that university intellectual reputation is associated with doctoral graduates’ productivity. When examining the relationship between the university and hospitals, university intellectual reputation was positively correlated with hospital biomedical advancement. Hospital productivity was significantly correlated with university intellectual reputation. University intellectual reputation was significantly correlated with hospital capacity to absorb knowledge and knowledge spillover. Regression analysis also reveals that hospital capacity to absorb knowledge and knowledge spillover are good predictors of hospital biomedical advancement, F 2, 176 62.637, p 0.001.Visual examination of the hospitals suggests that when universities publish at a large quantity, this influences hospitals within the area to publish as well. Additionally, hospitals that are more productive tend to cluster around universities with higher intellectual reputation.
