How Penelope Kokkinides Experience In Medicine Helps Transform Innovacare Health

During the third quarter of 2016, Innovacare Health, in an attempt to freshen out its top brass leadership appointed Penelope Kokkinides as its new Chief Administrative Officer. She assumed this position alongside Jonathan Meyers who settled for the Chief Actuary officer and Mike Sortino as the Chief Accounting Officer. Her leadership abilities and efforts to make Innovacare Health the leading Puerto Rican health provider have continually paid off, culminating with her invitation to the White House.

 

Penelope before joining InnovaCare Inc

 

Before joining Innovacare, Penelope Kokkinides had already spent close to two decades in the healthcare sector. Most of this time was spent in government service where she specialized in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. She particularly made a perfect candidate for Innovacare due to her vast experience in designing and managing healthcare programs and operations while improving the organizational efficiency.

Penelope also takes credit for the development of the health model currently used AmeriChoice, a UnitedHealth Group subsidiary, while working as their Vice President for disease and care management department. The Columbian University MPH graduate had also worked as the Chief Operating Officer at Touchstone medical before moving on to Centerlight Health Systems where she served as CEO and executive vice president.

 

Kokkinides takes the Puerto Rican health campaign to the White House.

 

In 2017, Penelope Kokkinides, together with a delegation of seven other women-medical professionals, had a roundtable discussion with President Trump at the White House. The meeting aimed at deliberating on the role of women in promoting healthcare industry. Her colleagues during these deliberations included healthcare executives and nationally acclaimed caregivers. She used her time to express the plight of healthcare in Puerto Rico citing that the island was in dire need of extra funding lest the locals turned to migrating to the rest of the States in search of affordable medical aid.

Penelope also brought to the president’s attention the fact that Puerto Rico’s health funding cuts implemented since 2011 were disproportionate to the rest of the States. The long-term health practitioner drew these facts from her hospital's records given that Innovacare’s all-popular Medicare advantage plan serves close to 600,000 citizens.

This devotion to health care on the Island paid off days later when the government announced improved adjustments to the Puerto Rican health system. Penelope Kokkinides bold representation of the Island is the boldest yet and its fruits are now visible. The move has also endeared her to the Puerto Rican masses as their unofficial healthcare representative.

Medical care has evolved over the years, and today hospitals are combining medicine with technology and communications. What is telemedicine? It is medical care at a distance. Everything from medical consultations in real time to performing computerized care via robotic technology is offered. And telemedicine offers many benefits at Copa Star Hospital.

  • Using telemedicine through videoconferencing offers the ability to convene a meeting of specialists who are geographically distant from each other
  • Telemedicine can help assess or assist in the medical evaluation of a patient
  • The academic use of medical videoconferencing can benefit doctors, whereas a teacher can educate a group or several groups of students who are distant geographically or in different teaching scenarios.

Besides the obvious benefit to the patient, the use of telemedicine provides an excellent opportunity to lower costs and control the disadvantages of human resources. Copa Star Hospital also implemented robotics, another useful tool in medicine.

Robotics is very useful in medicine because it enables doctors to get where the human eye cannot. This technology compensates for any deficiencies and limitations of a surgeon, especially when it comes to invasive surgery techniques. Rather than take over, surgical robotics balances work for the surgical team. For example, laparoscopy uses surgical methods with robotic arms for cases where the intervention level is low and the recovery of the patient is to be made in the shortest possible time.

Overall, when using robotics, not only is intervention performed much more accurately, but recovery is much faster. In addition, physicians say the use of robots reduces the hospital stay, reduces operating trauma, and benefits the cosmetic impact to the patient. Visit their profile page on Facebook.

Copa Star Hospital certainly has developed a new dimension for patient care and recuperation. The hospital offers a perfect blend of refined serenity and comfort, with top-notch medical care.
