The History of InnovaCare
Tracing its roots to 1998 with Richard Shinto on the frontline of its establishment, InnovaCare Health has made quite the strides in the medical field. Perhaps its history would begin with Richard Shinto’s time in the North American Medical Management (NAMM). Richard Shinto who was by then just a practicing doctor realized that there was quite the shortfall in operational expertise in doctors. Through NAMM, however, he was able to do good by seeing to the efficient providence and delivery of top-notch care.
What is InnovaCare?
InnovaCare Health is a healthcare company that seeks to ensure the providence of quality care to patients, while at the same time maintaining healthy resources for their physicians. The end result of taking off the load of finances which poses as a great challenge to health institutions is what the company aims to achieve. Everyone sleeps better when the patient, physician and health centers are all covered by an able company.
Richard Shinto’s Background
Richard Shinto, known by many as Rick Shinto, holds both the executive chief and presidential positions at InnovaCare Health. Established with a solid 20-year clinical experience, Dr. Shinto holds a history as the executive chief at Aveta Inc. He, later on, stretched out to become NAMM’s Chief Medical Officer before its partnership with The Straus Group. The company did well over the years before the acquisition of MMM Healthcare which led to Rick’s promotion to the CEO position.
For his excellent work, Rick Shinto was earlier this year graced with a ‘Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare, 2018’ award by Modern Healthcare. One of the most memorable moments in his career, however, would be back in 2012 when he won the ‘Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ award. This prestigious award is presented to excellent entrepreneurs with notable successes in innovation.
Ms. Penelope Kokkinides
InnovaCare Health would not be where it is, however, without the inputs of Ms. Penelope Kokkinides. Having held the Chief Operating Officer’s position at InnovaCare, Penelope identifies as the company’s 2-year Chief Administrative Officer. Just like Rick, Ms. Penelope Kokkinides has a history at Aveta Inc. running from 2006 to 2012 where she was the COO. She held the same position at Touchstone Health where he services kicked off on the July of 2008. Ms. Kokkinides holds credit for playing a part in the development and implementation of the healthcare model. She was able to do this during her time at AmeriChoice where she was the VP for Care Management and Disease Management. With a 15-year healthcare experience, Penelope has served majorly on the lines of government programs besides managed care.
