A message from the chief medical officer:

We use your Beaumont email because it is a secure and well-maintained email service using Outlook. Personal email addresses are more vulnerable to cyberattacks and the use of Beaumont email will provide uniformity and consistency as well as the assurance that you are receiving important communications.

We understand that many of you do not use your Beaumont email because you have had a bad experience in the past with receiving too many non-work-related messages. Our IT team is working to block unrelated communications and create firewalls to keep out unnecessary messaging. And, with security of email of vital importance, Beaumont’s IT team works diligently to provide as secure a system as possible.

We appreciate your patience and feedback as we continue to improve this process daily. Please send any feedback you may have to physician.communications@beaumont.org.
