Since 2012, InnovaCare Health has been under the wise guidance of Richard Shinto, M.D. InnovaCare Health is an industry leader in the field of healthcare management based in New Jersey, providing care management services in Puerto Rico. InnovaCare has provided care management over Medicare and Medicaid programs for quite some time, and repeatedly proved that the task can be accomplished with efficiency and care for the patients under its management. InnovaCare Health’s track record in excellence under Dr. Shinto speaks for itself.In 2014, InnovaCare Health’s leaders pushed the envelope in providing affordable, modern healthcare for their patients earning the company the prestigious Access to Caring award. This respected award is not easily attained, and speaks not only to Rick Shinto’s leadership skill, but also to InnovaCare Health’s dedication to their core value; putting the patient first. In 2015, Dr. Shinto brought on board another titan in the industry, Penelope Kokkinides, to serve as InnovaCare Health’s Chief Administration Officer.
The success of Dr. Shinto and Mrs. Kokkinides’ leadership should come as no surprise. Both came to InnovaCare Health with strong resumes. Richard Shinto was previously the lauded Chief Executive Officer of Aveta Incorporated, and Dr. Shinto was the recipient of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award in 2012. Mrs. Kokkinides was also a talented administrator, with two decades of experience in a range of duties including Vice President and Chief Operating Officer across a wide spread of companies including Centerlight HealthCare, Touchstone Health, and AmeriChoice.Since the installment of the Shinto- Kokkinides dream team, the company’s dedication to innovating care management has pushed even further.
In 2016, InnovaCare Health announced their participation in the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network initiative, which took on the existing payment model for US healthcare. The existing payment model was based on quantity, instead of quality. The new model would change all of that, ensuring that patients received and paid for quality healthcare from providers that cared more about their wellbeing.Dr. Shinto and Mrs. Kokkinides’ dedication to excellence and their ability to innovate for the benefit of their patients marks them as great leaders in the healthcare arena. Given the historical great successes of the Rick Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides team, there is little doubt that InnovaCare Health will continue to strive for better care for their patients, and continue to push the envelope to create positive change in healthcare management.
