Bob Tanner, President/CEO, Lupe Fonseca, COO, and Dr. Deepak Ariga, CMO of Greater Family Health shared how Greater Family Health’s corporate culture, and resultant specific workflows, training, and accountability systems, have helped Greater Family Health achieve long-standing success regarding patients’ ability to control their hypertension.
