Executive Health Exams Q & A
Why are health screenings performed?
Health screenings are performed to ensure good health and used to identify possible health issues in their earliest stages. Detecting health conditions like prostate cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, breast cancer, and skin cancer while still in their earliest stages can save a person's life. Early detection allows for more treatment options. Also, catching high blood pressure before it damages the heart allows the person to make positive lifestyle changes and improve their health. Further, cancers that are caught in the earliest stages can be removed and treated, adding years to a patient's life.
What’s a health surveillance system?
Health assessments and employee assistance are used to create an effective health surveillance system. With this system in place, employees closely monitor their health in an attempt to correct any existing health issues and prevent future health problems from presenting. Further, this type of program also offers employees guidance and lifestyle management tools that allow them to create and sustain healthy lifestyle patterns.
Why are executives closely monitored?
Executives are often closely monitored when it comes to their health due to the high-stress levels associated with their job. While each person handles stress differently, their overall health plays a role in how long they maintain their health under pressure. Offering people in leadership healthy options to relieve their stress is important. Dr. Liva also stresses that you should allow them to create positive lifestyle patterns that fit their particular needs; this helps increase their productivity and improve their overall job growth outlook.

Will your company pay for an executive exam?
Because our health is so closely tied to performance, many companies provide extra benefits to executives so that allow them to get more comprehensive exams. Body scans, stress tests, and extensive blood work may be needed to assure that you are in optimal health, to catch conditions early and begin preventive treatment. This is a win-win-win, for the company, the executive, and the executive's family.
