InnovaCare is a global health service provider based in Puerto Rico. Known for its pursuit of high-quality medical care, the firm has joined the Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) to implement changes in the health sector. Such a move is aimed at promoting quality medical care as opposed to quantity.
The company is committed to expediting the move to alternative modes of payment. It intends to be at the forefront in advocating for health reforms across the country. A quantitative data study is in the pipeline to determine various viable payment options to patients. Besides, InnovaCare Health is guided by principles such as cost effectiveness, quality, innovation and coordinated access to care.
Several organizations from the public, private and non-profit sectors have joined the initiative to transform health through the constant supply of quality healthcare. Discussions by several stakeholders are geared to provide suitable alternatives to the current mode of payment. The company’s C.O.O, Penelope Kokkinides, has assured stakeholders of their commitment to achieving set milestones and making a clear difference in the health industry.

About the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network
The LAN platform serves as a foundation for the dissemination and sharing of vital information among concerned stakeholders. Moreover, HHS strives to ensure that currents projects shift their attention to the delivery of substitute payment options on pmcpr.org. By implementing targets set by LAN, patients no longer have to pay for medical services offered. Payment is made to hospitals based on the quality of health care provided.
To promote service delivery, the company has added three new members to its highly talented team. Jonathan Meyers serves as the firm’s chief actuary officer. His invaluable knowledge is crucial in the realization of set goals and objectives. Before the appointment, Meyers worked at HealthCare Partners as chief actuary officer. On the other hand, Penelope Kokkinides’ appointment as the chief administrative officer has been hailed by health experts courtesy of her unrivaled expertise and immense experience. She previously served as COO and executive vice president of Centerlight HealthCare.
The company credits its CEO, Rick Shinto, for his relentless pursuit of excellence. Furthermore, his invaluable insight has elevated the firm’s status as a top provider of health care solutions in Puerto Rico.
