MISSION: YOUR HEALTH IS YOUR WEALTH

One of the cornerstones of a company’s success is the physical well-being of its corporate executives and employees. Ongoing advances in preventive medicine have made an increasing number of screening tools available each year to help reduce the risks of developing health problems. It is the mission of Beaumont® Executive Health Services to provide our clients with personalized access to the leading new developments in preventive healthcare and to tailor our services to meet the individual needs of our corporate leaders and their companies.

The Executive Health program was expressly designed to address the preventive care needs of our clients. One of the mainstays of preventive care involves early detection of health risks—frequently when there are no apparent signs of disease. Individuals’ risks for developing certain health problems vary widely. As a client of Beaumont® Executive Health Services, you will receive a comprehensive medical evaluation focused on:

• Identifying your personal risks for developing certain health problems
• Screening for early symptoms of disease or previously undetected conditions
• Minimizing (or eliminating) present and future health risks
• Optimizing care of current illnesses

Should you or your examining physician request further tests or consultations, our staff will gladly coordinate these appointments for you, utilizing the extensive specialty resources available at William Beaumont Hospital, when appropriate.

CLIENTS

Who can benefit from our Executive Health program? Preventive care aims to optimize health and reduce health risks—particularly those risks associated with disease and disability. At Beaumont® Executive Health Services, our clients include, among others:

  • Executives from large, medium, and small companies
  • Executives’ family members (including children and teenagers)
  • Corporate employees
  • Individuals requiring pre-employment physicals
  • Private participants

Although preventive care strategies may differ by age, prevention is beneficial at any age. Our medical team is able to meet the distinct preventive needs of children and teenagers, as well as young, middle-aged, and older adults.

EXECUTIVE PHYSICAL

CONFIDENTIALITY

Each client’s privacy is our priority. To enhance your privacy, our office suite is reserved for our Executive Health clients during program hours. As the guardians of your executive healthcare information, we also consider your medical record strictly confidential. Only at your written request will information be made available to anyone other than you.

COMPREHENSIVE CLINICAL EXAMINATION

The hallmark of Beaumont’s executive health program is the executive physical, which is modeled after the most recent guidelines set forth by leading medical societies. The executive physical is performed by your choice of one of our team of board-certified specialists in internal medicine.

What are the typical components of the executive physical? Prior to the actual physical examination, you can expect a complete review of your past medical history, family history, and current health status. Because lifestyle decisions can affect your degree of risk for incurring certain diseases and health conditions, we encourage discussion of issues such as diet, vitamin use, exercise, sleep quality, and stress, as well as any health or lifestyle questions you might have. Careful attention is given to identifying your personal risk factors for certain health problems and to discussing strategies for minimizing them.

Following your consultation with the physician, a series of routine screening tests are completed. For your privacy and convenience, these studies are performed in our office suite on the same day as your executive physical.

ROUTINE SCREENING TESTS

In addition to the clinical examination, one of the primary strategies for preventing or diagnosing illness in our clients is a group of health screening tests—the need for which may vary based on factors such as your personal or family medical history, age, and gender. Tests typically performed or recommended at your executive physical include the following:

• COMPLETE BLOOD COUNT (CBC)

• URINALYSIS

• BASIC EXECUTIVE CHEMISTRY PROFILE

• LABORATORY STUDIES OF CHOLESTEROL METABOLISM AND CORONARY RISK FACTORS

• ELECTROCARDIOGRAM (ECG)

• PULMONARY FUNCTION TESTING

• HEMOCCULT TESTING

• IMMUNIZATION REVIEW AND UPDATE

• CLINICAL BREAST AND LYMPH NODE EXAMINATION

• DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY

• PAPANICOLAOU (PAP) TEST

• MENOPAUSAL HORMONAL SCREENING AND HORMONE REPLACEMENT COUNSELING

• BONE MINERAL DENSITY TESTING

• PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN (PSA) TESTING

• SUPPLEMENTARY TESTING

FORMAL PRESENTATION OF FINDINGS

Once your test results are available, you will receive a personal letter from your physician explaining his or her medical findings, as well as copies of your test results. Specific recommendations will be made for reducing your risk of developing major health problems, including: (1) health-related lifestyle modifications, (2) medications or other therapies, and (3) supplementary examinations or consultations.  

SPECIALTY EVALUATIONS

One of the primary goals of Beaumont’s Executive Health Services is to help our clients reduce the risk of incurring unnecessary illness and disability. Your risk of developing a disease is dependent on many factors—including age, gender, personal and family history, lifestyle, and environment. Health promotion requires knowledge not only of your personal risk profile but also of strategies for minimizing risks to your health. Depending on your physician’s findings and your own personal concerns, further examinations or consultations may be appropriate. The following represents a partial list of the broad range of available screening and diagnostic studies:

COLONOSCOPY

• CT COLONOGRAPHY (VIRTUAL COLONOSCOPY)

• CORONARY CALCIUM SCORING

• EXERCISE STRESS TESTING

• ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY STRESS TESTING

• MYOCARDIAL PERFUSION STRESS TESTING

• SCREENING VASCULAR ULTRASONOGRAPHY

• CT CORONARY ANGIOGRAPHY

• CHEST X-RAY

• HEARING EVALUATION

• EYE EXAMINATION

• DEXA BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS

• DIETARY/NUTRITION CONSULTATION

• SUPPLEMENTARY TESTING

The need for any of these specialty screening evaluations will be thoroughly discussed with you by your physician.  Should you require additional care, personalized attention will be given to coordinating and scheduling all of your Executive Health specialty appointments for you.  Please keep in mind that certain supplementary appointments can be prescheduled for you on the same day as your executive physical.  When that is not possible, we will make every effort to accommodate the constraints of your personal schedule.

Frequently Asked Questions

Although it is not possible to anticipate every question that might arise, we have assembled the following list of frequently asked questions in an effort to provide you with a more thorough understanding of Beaumont Executive Health Services:


What are the benefits of participating in Beaumont’s Executive Health program?

Beaumont Executive Health Services has earned the loyalty of its clients by dedicating itself to providing the highest standard of preventive healthcare. Our program blends personalized clinical care with advanced screening and diagnostic technologies. Among its many benefits, preventive healthcare focuses on:

Identifying the diseases or conditions for which you may be at particular risk

Reducing or even eliminating the possibility of your developing certain health problems

Detecting already existing problems early in their course

Optimizing care of current health conditions to minimize complications and improve your quality of life


The executive physical examination—the foundation of our program—is performed by your choice of one of our team of specialists. When studies beyond the executive physical are requested by our clients or recommended by their physicians, our program provides streamlined access to the state-of-the-art primary and specialty services available at William Beaumont Hospital.


Can I participate in your program if I already have a primary care physician?

Yes. The preventive care provided by Beaumont Executive Health Services complements the care you receive from your personal physician. The physicians at Beaumont Executive Health Services are not intended to replace your primary care physician, nor do we need a referral from a primary care doctor for you to be seen in our executive health program.


Does your program serve patients of all ages?

Though prevention strategies may differ along the age spectrum, the benefits of preventive medicine apply to children and adults of all ages. We are able to offer pediatric evaluations, as well as preventive healthcare for young, middle-aged, and older adults.


How do I prepare for my executive physical?

After you schedule your executive physical, you will receive a confirmation letter containing thorough preparatory instructions for your appointment (as well as any prescheduled specialty appointments). Please be assured that preparation for your executive physical is minimal. Unless specifically indicated, we do not generally request copies of prior medical records.


How much time should I allow for my executive physical?

Your consultation with your executive physician typically lasts about one hour; office-based diagnostic testing could take another one to two hours. To allow for the individualized nature of preventive care, please consider setting aside a half-day. If you have specialty appointments prescheduled on the same day as your executive physical, we can advise you individually about the estimated length of your day.

For your privacy, our office suite is reserved for our Executive Health clients during program hours. Because most of our clients will have been fasting in preparation for their laboratory studies, a continental breakfast is provided in our suite.


How are specialty appointments scheduled?

Typically, our staff will make all of the necessary arrangements for specialty consultations or tests requested through our program. Our goal is to coordinate your care as efficiently and smoothly as possible—whether you need a single appointment, a designated group of tests, or a more complex set of evaluations

If you are a member of a participating corporate group, you may wish to confirm financial coverage for these appointments with your company or health plan. The level of coverage for specialty appointments may differ from that provided for your executive physical examination.


When will I receive the results of my executive physical?

Same-day findings can generally be reviewed with you at your appointment. After approximately four weeks (once the results of your diagnostic and laboratory studies become available), your physician will send you a personal letter detailing his or her findings and recommendations, along with copies of all of your test results. Findings that become available after that time will also be communicated to you in writing.


Are my medical results communicated to my employer?

Your medical information is considered confidential. We are strongly committed to helping you keep your personal health information private. We will not disclose any information to your employer unless you expressly request in writing that we do so.


How are billing arrangements handled?

Beaumont Executive Health Services does not bill your insurance company for payment. Corporations will be billed directly for executive physicals and for applicable supplementary evaluations or tests. Individuals who privately schedule executive physicals will similarly be responsible for all charges incurred.


Will my health insurance cover my executive physical?

Insurance coverage for preventive health care services can be highly variable. Please contact your health insurance provider or representative to confirm your level of coverage, as some of them reimburse you partially.
