When Hurricane Maria swept through Puerto Rico in mid-September 2017, it left a trail of damage that the locals are yet to recover from. From hospitals to roads, homes, healthcare facilities and power lines, the hurricane-ravaged most of the infrastructures in the region. In the wake of the hurricane, many Puerto Ricans have battled with the problem of accessing quality and comprehensive healthcare services. Even though the area has fought with pressing health care issues for decades, the hurricane heightened the severity of the inadequacies in Puerto Rico’s healthcare sector. However, InnovaCare Health, under the leadership of its chief executive officer and president Rick Shinto has stepped into the gap with innovative healthcare services such as mobile clinics, makeshift clinic and home health visits.
Through its Medicare y Mucho Mas (MMM) healthcare plan offered by its subsidiary in the island, InnovaCare Health runs a makeshift clinic, Recargate, in San Juan that provides comprehensive healthcare services for those enrolled under the Medicare and Medicaid health plans. The clinic offers counseling, physical examination, and referral services. It also organizes numerous health and wellness workshops and educational seminars, to help the residents to recharge both emotionally and physically from the devastating effects of the hurricane. Those seeking for social services can also visit the center to get the much-needed help considering that the hurricane damaged most of the offices in the area. They can also pick refills for essential commodities such as drugs as the center has become a collection and distribution center in the area.
InnovaCare Health’s dedication to the promotion of quality healthcare provision in the country especially in Puerto Rico has seen the company’s chief administrative officer, Penelope Kokkinides, visit the White House as part of a panel invited by the president. The eight-member committee comprised of women actively involved in the healthcare industry in various capacities. They discussed the legislative agenda of the administration when it comes to improving healthcare provision. During the meeting, Kokkinides argued that cutting costs associated with Medicare Advantage can help more Puerto Ricans access healthcare services. The meeting also stressed the importance of the millions of women serving in the sector in pushing for the provision of quality and affordable healthcare services.
InnovaCare Health employs the best talents in the industry to serve in various roles. The company is currently looking for member enrolment manager and director of the pharmacy to serve at MMM of Florida, Inc. subsidiary. The company is also seeking to hire a corporate chief medical officer to oversee its managed care services, a chief financial officer, and a health recruiter to serve on a temporary basis.

It is a deserved post after working his way up from a humble position into his very first executive position of director of marketing.

Brazil has the largest economy in Latin America and the seventh largest in the world. Like many countries, Brazil has had up and downs in its economic growth.

Flavio Maluf reports Brazil has notoriously high taxes for doing business in the country. With such high taxes, increases businesses operation expenses and discourages business development. Considering the need for economic stimulation, the government has initiated various programs designed to stimulate more business development and job growth in the hopes to improve economic growth.
Flavio Maluf has been a business executive with Eucatex since 1997. According to Flavio, the federal government of Brazil has passed laws that lessen some of the financial burdens on taxation in the country. Business is still required to pay taxes, however, the funds are managed in more fiscally responsible manner. Flavio Maluf reports on Fiscal Incentive Laws, which are designed to stimulate more job creation and business development. Under these fiscal incentive laws, the taxes that are paid are not simply pushed directly to the government. Instead, portions of the funds are funneled to fund various social programs. In the past 100% of the taxed funds would go directly to the federal government, and from where the funds were used however the federal government desired. Under the new laws not only are the funds distributed in a more economically strategic manner, the businesses can leverage the funding to save money off advertisements. The business has the freedom to take credit for funding some of the programs the funding was used for as a sponsor.
The Fiscal Incentive Laws don’t actually cut taxes, but at least now the funds are used in more efficient and fiscally responsible manner. Also, businesses can take credit for funding programs that benefit from the tax funding distribution, which allows businesses to save money on advertisement. There are also other tax-free areas in the country to encourage business to relocate to these regions to take advantage.
