InnovaCare Health Solutions is an industry leader in providing quality healthcare programs to the underserved in North America. Richard Shinto has been the CEO of the company, formerly Aveta, and together with a strong leadership team has steered InnovaCare to the success it enjoys today.
Dr. Rick Shinto was the pioneer of the medical provider network idea that is now widespread in Puerto Rico. Before joining InnovaCare, Rick Shinto had served as the CEO of PMC Medicare Choice and MMM Healthcare. He also served as the Chief Medical Officer and Chief Operations Officer at Medical Pathways Management Company and the Chief Medical Officer at the Californian healthcare company NAMM.
He garnered over 20 years experience in operational and clinical health care solutions before joining Aveta Inc. (now InnovaCare) in 2008. While at InnovaCare Health, Rick has launched several successful projects that has seen many underserved patients gain access to proper healthcare. Under his leadership, InnovaCare has seen over 200,000 individuals join its membership program which has over 7,500 employees to cater to the clientele.
According to Rick Shinto, providing easy access to Medicare and Medicaid isn’t the last stop. He also educates his patients on healthcare awareness at the same time offering support to their families during the time their loved ones are in treatment. It is such empathetic gestures from a certified MD that has seen Rick scoop the Access to Caring Award at the ‘A Tribute to Caring’ gala held at the Wester University of Health Sciences.
Part of Shinto’s winning formula is in employing an experienced and talented management team to the pillar of leadership at InnovaCare. Recently, he brought in three new faces to the management team, one of them being the equally ambitious, visionary and talented Penelope Kokkinides. Ms. Kokkinides serves as InnovaCare’s Chief Administration Officer and holds over 20-year experience in healthcare solutions.
Before joining InnovaCare, Ms. Kokkinides held an executive positon as Vice President and COO of Centerlight Healthcare. She has also served as the COO of Touchstone Health and the Corporate VP of AmeriChoice heading the Care and Disease Management departments. Penelope Kokkinides played a major role of formulating and implementing healthcare models that suited the corporate firms.
