Since joining InnovaCare, Dr. Shinto has made it his goal to help lead the company into a better world. InnovaCare Health is one of the companies that joined the Medicare program to help serve citizens in need of health care. They’ve been offering their services to Puerto Rican citizens in particular to try and grow the health of the island’s people.
Thanks to Dr. Rick Shinto’s work, InnovaCare Health has become the highly preferred health care service in Puerto Rico due to the fantastic quality of their offered services and just how affordable it really is. They have done everything in their power to make their services affordable, quick, and easy. Although they’ve been in the industry for a far shorter time than other companies, Rick Shinto has chosen to continue pushing transformations to better improve the company and its performance.
Recently, he had the company install a load of new technology in their systems. This allowed customers to access the services offered by InnovaCare Health faster, giving the company a more efficient way to service more customers at the same time.
In only five short years, InnovaCare Health has been able to vastly improve its services and expand itself. Five years ago they had less than 50,000 Medicare members, but now a days that number is closer to 250,000. This is all thanks to Rick Shinto’s leadership skills and the changes he has supported and made within the company.
Rick Shinto was not working alone though. At his side is Penelope Kikkinides. She is a health care expert and has been working as the chief administrative officer for InnovaCare Health since 2015. With over 20 years of experience in health care, she puts her specialty on Medicare and Medicaid. She has previous experience working at Aveta Health Solutions.
