How Dr. Shinto Leads InnovaCare Health

Every good physician has a well-accomplished career; even before joining the medical field. In the case of Richard Shinto, his early successes include his numerous university degrees. The most important of those degrees is his medical degree, which he got from the State University of New York. After earning his medical degree, he began practicing as an internist and pulmonologist. Over the years, he’s earned medical tenure in Southern California and maintains his license to practice. Richard Shinto also begun writing articles about healthcare and clinical medicine; many of which have been published.

To date, Dr. Shinto has worked in managed care for over 20 years. He’s worked at several healthcare institutions, serving as high-ranking officers at each company. Now, he’s using his decades of experience to lead InnovaCare Health into a brighter future; serving as the company’s President and CEO.

When it comes to medical care, people only think about the nurses and doctors they see in hospitals. In truth, there’s an entire industry behind those nurses and doctors. The healthcare environment is more than just physicians and desk clerks. People usually don’t want to learn about the entire industry because the current healthcare environment is too complex to understand.

Everyone at InnovaCare is trying to make managed care better. Everything the company does goes toward making their lives of their patients healthier. That’s why the company and all its subsidiaries try to create better managed care models. These new models hope to be driven by quality and put their patients first.

Someone helping to lead InnovaCare is Penelope Kokkinides. Penelope Kokkinides is a Columbia University School of Public Health graduate with three Master’s degrees. She also holds a Bachelor’s degree from Binghamton University. Her true contribution to the company comes in the form of her 20-plus-years experience.

Currently, Kokkinides serves as Chief Administrative Officer, but this isn’t her first time working with InnovaCare. Originally, she served as COO but left to pursue more options. When she returned, the company welcomed her back, realizing how much she’d learned during her years away.

During her career, she specialized in working with government programs. She’s also great at developing programs and overseeing health care operations. Her true genius is developing and implementing health models. Her greatest accomplishment happened while she worked at AmeriChoice.
