What Kind Of Patient Are You?

One thing we have learned through our SWAP interviews is the difference between a "compliant" patient and a truly "engaged" patient. High Performance Patients (HPP) and High Performance Caregivers (HPCG) are always engaged. Blind compliance can get you into lots of trouble. Engagement means you are involved in the process and making the system work for you.

Enter your email to learn how they operate so you can become a HPP or a HPCG too.
