InnovaCare Health is the Recipient of Beryl Institute’s Top Honor, the 2020 Patient Experience Organizational Innovation Award
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — April 30, 2020 – InnovaCare Health, a national leader in integrated and value-based healthcare services, announced today the company has earned The Beryl Institute’s top honor – the 2020 Patient Experience Organizational Innovation Award – for their triad of innovative programs positively impacting the health of senior populations. InnovaCare Health is one of three recipients of Beryl’s Patient Experience Innovation Award and the only health plan to ever receive the honor.
The Beryl Institute, a community of more than 55,000 members from over 80 countries across the globe committed to elevating the human experience of healthcare, recognizes healthcare providers for their commitment to change cultures, implement new strategies and build true partnerships with patients and families through this annual award. InnovaCare’s award-winning submission highlights three programs offered through its Puerto Rico-based subsidiary, MMM Healthcare, to improve the lives of seniors.
The triad of services includes:
- Member Clubs: Help seniors stay physically, mentally and emotionally well by providing safe community spaces for members to gather. Combating loneliness and depression, these clubs offer wellness classes, exercise facilities and activities that engage seniors in living their best life.
- Vita Care Clinics: Provide complex care management for chronic illnesses. Interdisciplinary teams work with seniors to provide coordinated, holistic services in one location. Better management of chronic illness is keeping these seniors at home.
- Unidad Dorada: Hospital units dedicated to providing a concierge-like hospital experience to members. Emphasis is placed on education and discharge planning to increase member compliance and reduce hospital re-admissions.
“InnovaCare and our family of subsidiaries has always pursued innovative opportunities to better support our members and patients in their healthcare journey, while providing the best possible experience. Our team’s commitment to patient-centered care and forward-thinking has allowed us to remain on the forefront of the managed care industry, and we are grateful to be recognized by the Beryl Institute for our work to improve the lives of the people we serve,” said Richard Shinto, M.D., President and CEO of InnovaCare.
Over the past few years, InnovaCare Health’s human experience efforts have been amplified through the development of the InnovaCare Health Office of Human Experience, which is singularly focused on improving the lives of InnovaCare’s providers, employees, patients and members. The Office of Human Experience, led by Chief Experience Officer Nicole Cable, works collaboratively across the enterprise to identify and implement creative strategies focused on the needs of InnovaCare’s members and patients and the people who care for them.
“This achievement would not be possible without our caring, compassionate and innovative team of employees and providers, who are always looking for ways to improve the experience for patients, members and . We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the work of our team internationally, and we’re honored receive the prominent Patient Experience Organizational Innovation Award from The Beryl Institute,” said Cable.
