Chicago-Based Authors Helps Patients Understand the Complex Healthcare System Through Their Book ‘The Confident Patient’
Two Chicago-based authors aim to empower patients through their healthcare journey in their book, “The Confident Patient.”

‘The Confident Patient’ the international best-selling book by Chicago-based authors Wendy K. Benson, MBA, OTR/L, and Elizabeth A. Myers, BSN, RN, educates patients and their families through the complex healthcare system through real-life stories, sample questions, and advice from medical professionals. The authors’ goal is for patients and their families to find comfort in knowing they are not alone and to feel a sense of control over their healthcare journey.

Myers is an experienced nurse who understands the profound challenges of providing professional companion services and healthcare coordination services. As the CEO and Founder of 2×2 Health, Myers says, “As a nurse, I saw patients who were extremely overwhelmed with managing their experience – the role of medical personnel, communication, which medications to take and when… it all adds up.” Additionally, health complications, insurance coverage, and confusing medical terms compound a patient’s experience, leading to anxiety.

The Confident Patient is the ultimate roadmap to guiding patients and their loved ones on who to connect with, what to ask, and how to move forward. According to the authors, when people are empowered to ask the right questions, they create the most effective support network for themselves and their families.

“At a time when we are most vulnerable, and for many of us, in unchartered waters, it’s important to ask for help,” reveals Benson, COO, and Partner of 2×2 Health. “The most successful experiences include patients and their families working together as a cohesive team with physicians, nurses, medical experts, and their extended community, such as neighbors and friends. The boost in collaboration and communication between patients, their families, and the medical community fuels the patient’s confidence and makes for a much more positive experience.”

The Confident Patient in a New World is the companion video series to The Confident Patient. Hosted by both authors, the series features interviews with diverse healthcare experts sharing insights in real-time. “We talk about current challenges, as they develop over time, and ways that they’re finding patients successfully work through those challenges,” explains Myers.

The Confident Patient and The Confident Patient in a New World are available through the website at The authors are also available on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
