The foundation for InnovaCare Health was laid by President and CEO Richard Shinto, M.D., in 1998, when he joined North American Medical Management (NAMM) in California. As a practicing physician, Dr. Shinto recognized the unmet need for operational expertise among physician groups and payers in a changing market, and he worked with NAMM to help healthcare organizations provide quality care more efficiently.
NAMM formed a partnership with The Straus Group in 2003, with healthcare entrepreneur and philanthropist Daniel E. Straus serving as Chairman of the Board. Over the next eight years, the company would grow immensely, acquiring MMM Healthcare in Puerto Rico while expanding its footprint across the United States through health plans, managed care opportunities and physician networks.
In December 2012, the management team successfully sold select properties of NAMM and officially formed InnovaCare Health to operate the remaining subsidiaries, including MMM. The company has continued to grow since that time, entering the Medicaid market and increasing revenues significantly.
