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.
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.
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)
• 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.
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:
• 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.
