Since 2012, InnovaCare Health has developed an impressive business model within the sphere of managed healthcare plans. Continuously striving to innovate and to change the way that healthcare payments are processed has been one of the defining features of the work that the company engaged in under the leadership of President and CEO Dr. Rick Shinto and Chief Operating Officer Penelope Kokkinides. Rick Shinto has been heavily involved in the healthcare industry for over twenty years now. He began his involvement in healthcare on the clinical side of the field before moving on to the operational and managerial side of things. His previous appointment before coming to InnovaCare Health was with Aveta. While at Aveta, Rick Shinto was that company’s Chief Executive Officer. Rick Shinto was also recently named to the list of the Top Twenty-Five Minority Executives in the Healthcare Industry for 2018. Officials at InnovaCare health proudly announced the fact that Shinto had made this list in a press release from February of 2018. The list is a way of honoring the best executives in healthcare that are of minority status.
InnovaCare has become a well-respected company within the healthcare sphere due to continued work toward being able to provide healthcare patients with the best value for their money. Joining the HHS Payment Initiative is one of the ways that the company is working toward doing this. This is a major initiative to reform the way that payments in healthcare are processed and it puts a significant emphasis on the concept of quality being more important quantity. Innovacare Health has also been fighting to bring improved healthcare to Puerto Rico. In this regard, Penelope Kokkinides recently met with President Donald Trump on this subject.
Similar to Dr.Rick Shinto, Penelope Kokkinides came to the InnovaCare team with an impressive resume of experience. Her past experience includes serving on the executive management team at Centerlight Health. Penelope Kokkinides has been a critical cog in the administrative apparatus at InnovaCare Health since her arrival. She gets a great deal of enjoyment out of the fact that every day at InnovaCare Health is a new challenge. This is a fact that she strongly feels helps to keep her sharp as well as motivated. She is a constant student of her field and after all of these years and all of the experience that she has accumulated, she continues to read articles and books on a regular basis in an effort to continue to learn more.
