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.

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.
