Abstract

This comparison of the care given migrant workers in Utah by private physicians with that provided by clinics demonstrates that clinics can provide more services and meet more of their needs. For a population group in need of an organization that can function specifically for them, the clinic offers many advantages. The clinic's role can also be expanded to become a focal point in the community for a comprehensive health care program for the disadvantaged. Although the cost of such a program may exceed the cost of traditional curative care from individual private physicians, the potential gains make it worth attempting. If long-term health is valued above short-term palliation, then the clinic would appear to be the best method of achieving this goal.
