Rick Shinto is the president and CEO of InnovaCare Health, the indisputable leader in managed healthcare programs in North America. Through this firm, he is providing high-quality care by integrating their services with innovative provider network models to ensure that clients obtain the highest quality service possible. InnovaCare Health has redefined healthcare services as we know them by providing Medicaid and Medicare Advantage plans that are designed to address the health care needs of every single person. The health care models run by this organization are based on sustainability, cost-effectiveness, quality, and integration with the most recent technologies. This company is also performing very well due to the influence of Penelope Kokkinides, the chief administrative officer. InnovaCare Health is based in Puerto Rico where it has attracted a membership of over 400,000 individuals and a provider network of over 7,500 employees.
Penelope has been working with InnovaCare Health since 2015 when she joined along with other three executives. The CEO of this company was interested in raising the bar of management and therefore had to look for the best talent that was available in the industry. It is at this point that Penelope was headhunted to lead this organization. She has a vast experience in the healthcare industry since she has worked with other organizations such as Aveta Inc. where he was president and chief operating officer. She has also spent some years working with other organizations such as Centrelight Healthcare and Touchstone Health. Penelope holds a degree in classical languages and biological sciences from Binghamton University and a master’s in public health from the University of Columbia. For the past 20 years, she has been in the managed care industry helping implement government-sponsored programs.
Penelope Kokkinides has a wealth of knowledge on clinical and operation of programs that need to be implemented to achieve growth. In an interview with Ideamensch, she made it clear that her success has been a result of a strategy that has worked so well for her. To remain productive for such a long time, she believes in approaching each day with its unique challenges. Her advice to investors is that they should invest in learning the market trend and always making their decisions based on facts on the ground.
In 2016, through the guidance of Penelope Kokkinides and Rick Shinto, Innovacare Health joined the learning and action network healthcare payments model which was recently launched by the federal government with the aim of streamlining healthcare services in both private and public sectors.
