Penelope Kokkinides and Rick Shinto Are Leading the Way to a More Efficient Healthcare System at InnovaCare Health

November 30, 2018 - Author: steph

Strong leadership makes healthcare systems work more efficiently for healthcare providers and patients, and InnovaCare Health has a great team of people that are working tirelessly to create the optimal system for everyone. InnovaCare Health has an integrated approach to healthcare that focuses on patients outcomes rather than the number of visits. Too often, patient care is inefficient, and this drives up the number of visits, which in turn drives up the cost to the patients and leaves practitioners overwhelmed. InnovaCare Health has a few key people who are working to alleviate this stressor.

Doctor and Leader, Rick Shinto

At InnovaCare Health, Dr. Rick Shinto has taken up the posts of president and chief executive officer. And these aren’t his first appointments. He’s been working in the healthcare profession for over 20 years. Not only has he been a practitioner who knows the ins and outs of working with patients, but he also has the leadership experience. He started as an internist and pulmonologist after completing his medical degree. After that, he earned his M.B.A. Since then, he’s worked for companies like MedPartners and Cal Optima Health Plan. Through some of his work experiences, he’s come to focus on physician-led models that improve finances and patient satisfaction. He’s also won the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year award and the Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare.

Leader, Penelope Kokkinides

Penelope Kokkinides also has many credits to her name. She focuses on ways to provide quality care to those who otherwise don’t have access. She does this through government-run programs and technology. At InnovaCare, she’s the chief administrative officer, but she’s has many other roles, as well. She’s worked for Touchstone Health and Centerlight HealthCare, among several other companies. Through this experience, she’s been able to hone the skills necessary to improve efficiency and organization’s structures. She also holds several degrees in related fields that have helped prepare her for this role. Through her master’s degree in social work and her other master’s degree in public health, she has the knowledge to meet the challenges of today’s healthcare system.

InnovaCare is also committed to helping people when they need it most. That’s why InnovaCare Health went to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit. InnovaCare Health provided clean water and medical care to the many patients living in Puerto Rico.

GreenSky Is Redefining The Home Improvement Loan

November 14, 2018 - Author: steph

Did you know that Americans spent hundreds of billions of dollars on home improvements in 2017 alone? The sad fact is that most of those Americans did not have the required funding to do those improvements on their own. They had to find some way to borrow money in order to make those adjustments to their home. That being said, it is well worth the money to most people if they were able to add value to their home in the long run. Finding funding is the hardest part of this entire process. That is where a new app by the name of GreenSky has come into play.

This particular company has not been in business for an extremely long time, but their ideas are fresh and raising a lot of interest both on Main Street and Wall Street. The venture has been so successful up to this point that GreenSky even decided to go public. When they released their initial public offering their expectations were set to sell approximately 34 million shares on their first day of trading. Investors were so excited to buy into this hot new company that they were able to sell more than 4 million additional shares over the amount that they expected. In total this generated hundreds of millions of dollars of much-needed capital to help to continue to grow GreenSky.

You wouldn’t realize all of this by speaking to the CEO and founder of the company, David Zalik. He is the kind of person that is not likely to grab the spotlight for himself. Instead, he was focused for the last decade or so on helping to build this company up from nothing to the multimillion-dollar enterprise that it is today. You have to give the man a lot of credit for all the work that he has been able to accomplish up to this point. There are already nearly 2 million people who can count themselves as customers of GreenSky. Borrowing for a home improvement has never been easier thanks to GreenSky, and this is just the beginning. The same company is preparing to offer more services in the years to come. They have already begun to do so in the healthcare sector. We can only assume what they might reach for next.

While leaving there, her heart longed to be in America. One day her wish came true when her and her family moved to New York City. New York City was and still is a place of hope for immigrants wanting to start their lives over. But New York City is no simple city to make in. The culture and community is busy, diverse and frankly expensive. Doe Deere and her family experienced a financial crisis when they first came to the United States.

The family dealt with homelessness. They were in and out of shelters. They ate from a local food pantry at a church. These struggles taught Doe Deere everything she currently knows about overcoming hardships in her life. She built her brand from her home. She started small and has become the founder of two brands. Her clothing line and makeup line reveal that no matter what a person goes through they can still go after their dreams. Her makeup company became one of the first cosmetic brands to explode all over the internet. Lime Crime was launched during the early days when ecommerce was just picking up speed. Today, Lime Crime can be found all over the world as it has become a popular cosmetics company.

Shervin Pishevar’s 21 hour Tweet Storm

August 8, 2018 - Author: steph

Shervin Pishevar, an early Uber investor, went on a 50 tweet rant this week predicting the U.S. economy decline. Among his many predictions, he said that there would be a fall in the value of Bitcoin to the range of $2,000 to $5,000. The fall would then be followed by a slow rise.

This was not something that was unexpected of Shervin Pishevar. He is a man of many words. However, something was a bit different when he continued his tweets touching on various topics from Bitcoin and bonds to SpaceX and immigration.

The storm has gained so much significance beyond its three-day lifespan.

Whether Shervin Pishevar decided to come back in connection to yesterday’s news about him dropping a lawsuit against Definers Public Affairs is unclear. Shervin Pishevar has persistently painted a grim picture on the U.S. economy’s future. Among his predictions include;

 The stock market will drop 6,000 points

He predicted that the US stock market would see a decline by over 6,000 points.

Bonds volatility will ripple in the rest of the markets

On this he posted two tweets; “But who is left to take the blame, especially with uncertainty from Washington over every major global deal.”

He continued to tweet saying that,”19/The bond market will be the first to attempt to rally and it will carry the equities market, but it will continue to fall when the b/c genie is out of the bottle.”

The Bitcoin will continue to crash

Shervin Pishevar also took to twitter to predict the fall of the biotin. He said that”23/the era of cheap money is over. Inflation is spreading, stock market is crashing, underemployment is hardening into systemic economic stasis.”

He also went on to post,”24/Gold will in response rise. The Bitcoin will continue crashing but will stabilize at 2k-5k range and begin a more sustainable rise over the next 24 months.”

Meet the Investment Genius: Louis Chenevert

June 7, 2018 - Author: steph

The success of Louis Chenevert is one that surprised everyone in the state. It led to the United Technologies Corporation (UTC) being named as the most profitable business in the USA. This was due to the wise decisions that Chenevert made for UTC. The legacy that he left in the company has led to many people reading about his mechanisms and applying them to their businesses. Even the current CEO of UTC finds it wise to apply some of his methods of operating a business to maintain the high standards of the company that Louis set.

Louis Chenevert says that among the factors that led to the success of the company is the fact that he chose the right team to complete his tasks. He says that no one can accomplish the goals of an organization without the support of a great team. He advises the young investors to invest in their team to see that they can diligently complete the tasks delegated to them.

As we grow, we get to experience many things, and we may feel there are better ways to handle the way we do our jobs. For Louis Chenevert, if he was to make any changes in the way he does his work, he could treat the internal politics of the firm differently. He further explains that there are two groups in the company; those aligned with the agendas of the company and the other group that is always against the agendas of a firm. Chenevert advises the young investors to ignore the latter group and move on with the focused group. He ends by saying that the naysayers always join in when the project is successful.

Louis Chenevert says that many factors led to his success as the CEO of UTC. He says it is hard to point out one of his attributes that facilitated this. However, he says that for one to be successful, they have to have relentless focus.

Louis Chenevert is currently pursuing his interests and spending time with his family. He is living a semi-retired life and working as a financial advisor at Goldman Sachs.
