Fresh Ideas at InnovaCare Health From Rick Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides

Innovative companies have innovative leaders, and InnovaCare Health has the top leaders to bring in fresh ideas so that quality of care for patients is improved while maximizing profits for healthcare providers and creating greater efficiency within the system. InnovaCare Health has an integrated approach to healthcare that focuses on physician-led care and outcome-based metrics. When physicians are in charge of the care that they provide, less time and fewer resources are spent in management. And when the focus is placed on the outcome of a patient, those patients receive higher quality care in fewer visits, keeping the amount of money that they need to spend on their healthcare down. InnovaCare Health has some great leaders implementing these basic tenets, and they have the experience and knowledge to see the vision through.
