The healthcare system in Puerto Rico was very different before Innovacare got to the scene. Six years after they introduced their managed healthcare services, the patients are happy and the registration of new clients has been doubling every consecutive year. Most of the success of the company has come from the quality of the services that they offer their customers and also the leadership that is at the top of the company. The two people that are at the top of the leadership pile are Richard Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides. Richard is the current CEO while Penelope is the Chief Administrative Officer.
The Chief Administrative officer to the company, Penelope Kokkinides did an interview with Ideamensch about the current job and the practices that have helped her get to the level where she currently is. She stated that there are a few things that she believes in that have been the driving force for the success in the past. The first of the principles that have led to her success is making sure that each day she spends is unique and unlike any of the others. She adds that maintaining a level of activity throughout the day keeps the ideas flowing and that the freshness of the air is something that makes her mind tick.

The other question that she was asked was how she manages to change abstract ideas into live concepts. Penelope Kokkinides stated that her secret weapon in this area is the team that she has behind her. She added that the success that she is enjoying at a personal level and the success that Innovacare has seen in the past is the result of the team work that has been applied in all of the projects that they take on. She added that as a person who travels a lot, she has also learned the value of relying on technology to communicate. The beauty of instant communication is to that it makes it easier to organize and coordinate the activities of the entire team in the simplest ways.
Richard Shinto has a similar approach to leadership as that of Penelope. He has been working in the managed healthcare business for the past two decades. Other companies that he had worked with previously include MMM and Aventa Health. There was also a time when he was the Chief Medical Officer at NAMM. He studied at NYU before getting an MBA from the University of Redlands.
