InnovaCare Health leadership team continues to expand the companies services globally and efficiently. Their efforts to improve the healthcare in Puerto Rico haven’t gone unnoticed.
In fact, the company’s Chief Administrator officer Penelope Kokkinides has already met with Donald Trump (Women in Healthcare Panel), where they discussed the ways by which they can improve the healthcare in Puerto Rico.
Improving The Healthcare In Puerto Rico
InnovaCare operates one of Puerto Rico’s most magnificent Medicare Plans, the MMM (or Medicare y Mucho Mas). Recargate, which is an MMM’s storefront, located in the inside Plazas Las Americas shopping center, has been visited by more than 20 000 people, just three months after it has been set up.
Remember, Puerto Rico has recently been hit by Maria Hurricane, which destroyed the countries infrastructure and power system. Stores, schools, and unfortunately, hospitals, ran out of power in the times of great need.
InnovaCare Health leadership (lead by Rick Shinto) pursued the idea of opening the Recargate to meet the Puerto Ricans needs, specifically, to prevent diseases and manage drug distribution. According to the MH article, 130 people visit Recargate on a day to day basis (of which 80% of them are elders), for they were hurt the most by the recent hurricane.
MMM wanted to close before March 31, but their mission has been delayed due to the seriousness of the situation in Perto Rico. InnovaCare has set more than 30 clinics just two weeks after the hurricane and has provided health services to more than 25 000 Puerto Ricans.
Most importantly, the company has no intention of abandoning those in dire need and will continue to heal the Puerto Ricans for as long as they need it. Shinto’s efforts in Puerto Rico didn’t go unnoticed.
Modern Healthcare awarded Dr. Richard Shinto, the CEO of InnovaCare, with Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare Award. Shinto said that he was honored to receive this reward, claiming InnovaCare will continue their efforts to provide help to those that need it the most.
Negotiating With US Government
It’s needless to say that Penelope Kokkinides has vast experience in healthcare business. She was invited to the Women In Healthcare panel, where she discussed the problems of Puerto Rico’s healthcare issues with president Donald Trump and Seema Verma.
Penelope complained about the cuts that have been made to the Medicare Advantage; the funding has dropped by more than $1 billion since 2011. Check out zoominfo.com
Without the additional funding, both MMM Healthcare and PMC Medicare Choice might not be able to serve more than 560,000 recipients. The Trum administration has promised to examine the mentioned issues, claiming that there might be room for progress. You can visit their Facebook page.
