A company’s success can hinge on the act of one leader. If that leader makes one mistake at the wrong time, the entire company can fail. On the other hand, if that same leader makes the right choice at the right time, the company will experience success like never before.When it comes to the medical industry, many of its leaders are fighting to improve the current healthcare environment. Right now, the healthcare environment is too complex and clogged with old regulations that no longer have relevance. As far as specific companies fighting to make healthcare better, InnovaCare Health is at the forefront of the movement.It’s InnovaCare’s mission to redefine healthcare management.
For years, their strategy has built patient-provider relationships. Much of those relationships rely on trust. If patients don’t trust their healthcare providers, it’s harder to give them the best quality medical care.Someone who truly understands that is Dr. Richard Shinto. Dr. Shinto is the best choice InnovaCare could have made in picking the right leader. Since being named President and CEO, Dr. Shinto has served InnovaCare well. His efforts even earned InnovaCare the number spot as Puerto Rico’s most trusted managed care provider.That accomplishment earned him another promotion, making him the CEO of Health Plans in the country. Overseeing several operations from multiple high-ranking positions is nothing new to Dr. Shinto. Throughout his career, Dr. Shinto has served at multiple companies at the same time. Upon first joining InnovaCare, he still served as President and CEO of Aveta Inc.
One of the most impressive things about Dr. Shinto is his effort to maintain his medical license. Although he’s focus on leading InnovaCare, he makes a great effort to continue his practice as an internist and pulmonologist. When he’s not practicing, he’s writing articles about healthcare and new clinical medicines.Another great member of the InnovaCare team is Penelope Kokkinides. Currently, Penelope is Chief Administrative Officer, but that was not always so. This is Penelope’s second time working with InnovaCare. The first time, she served as COO but left to pursue other options.Upon her return, she immediately began applying her expertise to the InnovaCare mission. Penelope is an expert in developing sustainable clinical programs and overseeing their operation. She’s always worked with government programs and understands how they work.
