A Team of Two
Richard A. Shinto, MD, is the current CEO, president and director for InnovaCare Health Solutions, LLC. He is also known as Rick. He has close board member affiliations with Joseph DeMarco, Rafael Ben Arroyo, David Nathan Roberts, Stuart H. Altman, Daniel E. Stross, Stephen R. Baker and Jonathan Collage. Both Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides are considered the brains behind InnovaCare. InnovaCare Health Solutions is a top industry leader that provides quality healthcare to those underserved in North America. Shinto has led as CEO for many years after formerly serving as CEO for Aveta; now, together with strong leadership that steers in InnovaCare to success, anything is possible.
Shinto was a pioneer for numerous medical provider networks prior to his current role. Before jumping onboard with InnovaCare, he had served as CEO for PMC Medicare Choice as well as MMM Health, which has helped multiple underserved patients gain access to efficient and affordable healthcare. Under Shinto’s leadership, InnovaCare has assisted hundreds of thousands of individuals to join its membership ranks. InnovaCare has more than 7,000 employees as well. According to Shinto, offering Medicare and Medicaid with easy access is not the last stop.
He also notes that it’s important to educate all patients on healthcare awareness while offering support to their respective families during treatment in order to gain the maximum recovery. Such empathetic gestures have earned Shinto his Access to Caring Award at the Western University of Health Science’s Tribute to Caring Gala. Another part of his winning formula lies in employing talented management teams to top pillars of leadership within InnovaCare Health. InnovaCare only promotes from within and sees potential in any candidate. As such, current and new employees are often encouraged to apply. Shinto has also served as Chief Medical Officer and Chief Operations Officer for Medical Pathways Management Company as well as Chief Medical Officer within the highly-regarded California healthcare company known as AMMM.
He has earned more than 20 years of experience within operational and clinical healthcare systems before joining Aveva Inc., which had changed its name to InnovaCare as of 2008. During his time at InnovaCare, he has launched numerous successful projects and gained many other company and outside awards. His Access to Caring Award from the Western University of Health Sciences will make anyone jealous, for this award is only given to a very few of the best minds.
