Abstract
Occupational health services provided by health maintenance organizations (HMOs) for small and medium sized industries in Rhode Island are reviewed. The Rhode Island Group Health Association is described, and local community health services and responsibilities are outlined. Program feasibility is evaluated based on concept, service, finances, staff, and legal considerations. The existing market for HMO programs also is reviewed. The authors conclude that occupational health services provide a valuable community service. There are enough high risk establishments in Rhode Island to warrant comprehensive occupational health programs. Initial start up costs are high, but the programs can become financially self supporting within 3 years. The Rhode Island Group Health Association should seek additional funding for further program evaluation and development.
