In recent years, the healthcare industry has made some major changes. These changes have been met with mixed reviews and never seems to be settled. The changes have hit across the board and have affected providers, hospitals, insurance agencies as well as the patients. Even with all of the changes that have been implemented, there are still areas for improvement. This is where InnovaCare Health comes in.
InnovaCare Health is a healthcare management firm offering their services to the people of Puerto Rico. The company is headed up by Rick Shinto, M.D. and Penelope Kokkinides, M.D. This company has made huge advancements in the healthcare industry. They are working to change the way health care is received and how payments are made.
InnovaCare Health has recently added themselves to the Health Care Payments Learning and Action Network, or LAN. The main objective behind LAN is to make big changes to the U.S. healthcare system. They would like to transform it into a payment based model that is more focused on quality of care as opposed to the current system where it is fee-based and centered on quantity.
The partnership between InnovaCare Health and LAN is based on a mutual goal to make changes to the U.S. healthcare system. Both goals and plans have been put in place to make this partnership a positive one and to move in the right direction to accomplish those goals.
The main objective is to provide the best care possible to all patients. LAN and partners believe a quality-based payment system is the best way to improve care and patient health. The current healthcare system can be expensive and is a fee-based system on pmcpr.org. Fees and services are added and the result generally ends up being the same. LAN believes that when quality is the focal point, better results can be achieved.
LAN and InnovaCare Health have already amassed a large number of partners that are committed to this cause according to Penelope Kokkinides. Some of the companies on the list are huge players in the healthcare industry. Healthcare is an industry that is always changing and what LAN and InnovaCare have planned will be a change in a positive direction. These changes will benefit all players in the system from the providers all the way to the patients.
