For several years, countless companies tried to redefine modern healthcare management. As a result of their failed efforts and a hands-off government, today’s healthcare environment is incredibly complicated. It’s nearly impossible for the average person to navigate their way to the quality medical care everyone deserves.Luckily, InnovaCare Health is the one company making huge strides in their mission of redefining the industry. InnovaCare figured out the best way to make managed care more accessible to everyone is to simply ask people what they need. That’s why InnovaCare places such importance on strong patient-provider relationships.The biggest contributor to InnovaCare’s efforts is the current President and CEO of InnovaCare, Inc., Dr. Richard Shinto. Dr. Shinto is the most qualified leaders at InnovaCare. With more than 20 years of experience in managed care, Dr. Shinto knows exactly what he’s doing and is results-oriented.
Shortly after joining InnovaCare, Dr. Shinto took charge of the company’s Health Plans in Puerto Rico. He used to lead another company, Aveta Inc. but left after its sale in 2012. His complete focus on InnovaCare’s mission made InnovaCare the number one provider of managed care in Puerto Rico in fewer than five years. That accomplishment earned him the CEO position of that particular subsidiary.Young Richard Shinto attended three separate universities. The State University of New York is where he earned his medical degree. He also holds a BS and an MBA; both from universities in California.
Penelope Kokkinides made a huge difference once she rejoined InnovaCare. A few years ago, she left her COO position at InnovaCare to pursue higher-ranking positions at other companies. In 2015, she rejoined InnovaCare Health and was named the new Chief Administrative Officer. Since rejoining the company, she’s become an indispensable part of the leadership of Rick Shinto.Kokkinides also has more than 20 years of experience in managed care. She specialized in the managed care industry and working with programs like Medicaid and Medicare. She’s one of the best in the business at reconstructing a company’s infrastructure to improve efficiencies.Kokkinides holds more degrees than Dr. Shinto, but she’s focused more on the relationship aspects of the business. She holds three master’s degrees, one a post-master’s advanced degree, from two universities. She holds two master’s from Columbia University School of Public Health.
