Zoe Barry

Zoë Barry is the founder and CEO of ZappRx, a digital health company focused on modernizing and streamlining the way specialty medications are accessed. While Zoë launched her career on Wall Street, felt compelled to transition into healthcare after a family member waited over 6 months to 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 works nationwide with doctors, hospital systems, pharmacies and other tech partners.

In addition to ZappRx, Zoë currently advises 2 startups; Remy (NYC) and Metiri (Boston). She is also passionate about mentoring and angel investing in women-led companies. Pixi Cycling (LA), ianacare (Boston), Future Fuel (Boston) and RDMD (SF) are all part of her angel portfolio. 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.
