For over 20 years, Dr. Richard Shinto has worked in the managed care industry. Most of his focus was operational healthcare. His expertise is valued by the other members of InnovaCare Health’s leadership. He’s also one of the most respected physicians in the healthcare management environment.
Currently, Dr. Shinto serves as President and CEO of InnovaCare. Before dedicated his time to InnovaCare, he also served as President and CEO of Aveta, Inc. Like many great physicians, Dr. Shinto’s career history is filled with high-ranking positions at other companies. He’s even served on a few management teams.
Now that his time is solely dedicated to InnovaCare, Dr. Shinto’s made some incredible contributions. One of his greatest successes was achieving the highest rank as Puerto Rico’s number one provider of managed care. Thanks to that achievement, Dr. Shinto was named CEO of the company’s Puerto Rico Health Plans company.
The company that Dr. Shinto leads is an industry leader. For years, the healthcare management environment has struggled to catch up to today’s problems. The lack of communication between patients and medical care providers gave way to today’s complex managed care industry. But, despite all the problems, companies like InnovaCare Health are trying to resolve the many problems facing those in need of quality medical care. In particular, InnovaCare believes in having strong patient-provider relationships, which leads to a better quality of life for all their patients. That’s why quality medical care is their number one goal.
Another 20-year vet of the industry is Penelope Kokkinides. Currently, Kokkinides serves as Chief Administrative Officer, but this isn’t her first time working with InnovaCare Health. She worked for the company once before, serving as COO. A few years after joining, she decided to pursue other options.
After leaving InnovaCare, she got a job at Centerlight HealthCare, where she served as Executive VP and COO. There, she oversaw everything in their managed care division. She eventually moved on to AmeriChoice, where she helped the company develop and implement its newest health model.
Kokkinides has always found it easy to lead companies in better directions. Her expertise is in developing clinical programs and overseeing their implementation and operation. Many of her contributions end up improving efficiencies and organizational infrastructure. She’s made an excellent addition to the new InnovaCare team.
