InnovaCare: Putting Patients First

Many of society’s troubles are caused by greedy corporations. That’s not to say that individuals aren’t also to blame, but corporations are too profit-focused. That might be acceptable for companies that aren’t in charge of human health-related industry. When it comes to the modern managed care environment; it’s too complex.

That’s why InnovaCare Health has set to change the system and better today’s challenging healthcare environment. Everything that InnovaCare does leads to providing their patients with the best quality medical care. That also means they put always put their patients first. It’s the best way to create strong patient-provider relationships.

Much of InnovaCare’s success relies on patient satisfaction. The order contributing factor is leadership. When it comes to leadership, InnovaCare Health has one brilliant man that shines brighter than all others; Dr. Richard Shinto. Dr. Shinto is the company’s current President and CEO. He’s the biggest contributor to InnovaCare’s success, other than their patients. Since joining InnovaCare, Dr. Shinto’s leadership made InnovaCare the number one provider of managed care in Puerto Rico. It’s the reason he was elected as the company’s CEO of Health Plans branch in Puerto Rico. Prior to joining InnovaCare, he worked with several other health care providers.

Since earning his medical degree from the State University of New York, he’s amassed over 20 years of experience, specializing in clinical and operational healthcare. He’s a practicing internist and pulmonologist, and he’s written dozens of articles about clinical medicine. There’s one other person at the company whose career rivals that of Dr. Shinto; Penelope Kokkinides. For over 20 years, Penelope Kokkinides has worked in the managed care industry, specializing in government programs. While her career isn’t as medically accomplished as Dr. Shinto’s; she has one advantage over him. She’s worked for InnovaCare before.

The first time Kokkinides worked for InnovaCare, she served as their COO. Upon her return, she was made Chief Administrative Officer. In a way, it’s a better position for her. She’s an expert at developing newer clinical programs and improving efficiencies.

Another achievement she holds over Dr. Shinto is having four university degrees. Penelope Kokkinides started with a Bachelor’s degree from Binghamton University. She followed that up by earning a Master’s from New York University.
