Dr. Zackary Sholem Berger offers a pithy definition of patient noncompliance.  Excerpts:

Noncompliance means I think the patient should do it this way and the patient didn’t do it this way. 

“Noncompliance” makes no effort to figure out why the patient did what they did, or what alternatives they might have selected instead.

“Noncompliance’ makes no effort to figure out if the alternative suggested (or: mandated) by the doctor was the best of all possible alternatives in the first place.
