America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the national trade association, has elected InnovaCare chief executive officer Richard Shinto to serve its board of directors.
Shinto was announced earlier this month as one of nine new members to the board, which will be led in 2018 by Bernard Tyson, chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente.
"It’s an honor to be elected to the AHIP board among such an esteemed group of leaders from the health insurance industry," said Shinto. "Given the constant state of change in healthcare today, this is a particularly important time for organizations like AHIP to bring together diverse perspectives to create a 360-degree view of the world in which we all operate. I look forward to working with my fellow board members to further define and advance the priorities that will help the nation’s health plans build a smarter and more efficient healthcare system."
Marilyn Tavenner, AHIP president and CEO, commented: "The addition of Dr. Shinto brings a leading, unique perspective from the managed-care space to our Board. Throughout his career as a physician leader, he has demonstrated a commitment to patients and the forward-thinking, innovative mindset necessary for success in healthcare today. We’re pleased to welcome him to the Board."
