Founder & CEO, ZappRx
Zoë Barry is the Founder and CEO of ZappRx, a digital health company focused on modernizing and streamlining the way specialty medications are accessed. After launching her career on Wall Street, she felt compelled to transition into healthcare after a family member waited over 6 months to get access to a key medication.
In 2011, Zoë joined athenahealth where she focused on implementing athenaClinicals at provider practices. Throughout her work at athenahealth and in healthcare, Zoë became aware of a major issue with today’s prescribing and prior authorization process, particularly related to specialty medications. As such, she decided to leave athenahealth to launch ZappRx in 2012. Today, ZappRx is deployed nationwide with top hospital systems, pharmacies and biopharma companies.
In addition to ZappRx, Zoë currently advises 3 startups; TIP (NYC), Remy (NYC) and Metiri (Boston). She is also passionate about mentoring women in STEM and angel investing in women-led companies. Zoe co-founded xxAngels and has invested in multiple startups, including: Pixi Cycling (LA), ianacare (Boston), Future Fuel (Boston), RDMD (SF) and TIP (NYC). Zoë was awarded Inc. Magazine’s 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30 list in 2015, Boston Business Journal 40 under 40 in 2015 and Medtech Boston’s 40 under 40 Heath care Innovator in 2016.
