Forbes Boston Business Council Is an Invitation-Only Community for Greater Boston Business Owners and Leaders
BOSTON, MA, July 30, 2018 —Zoë Barry, the founder and CEO of ZappRx, a digital health company that is streamlining the way specialty medications are accessed, has been accepted into the Forbes Boston Business Council, an invitation-only community for Greater Boston business owners and leaders.
The Forbes Council combines an innovative, high-touch approach to community management developed by the team behind Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) with the extensive resources and global reach of Forbes. As a result, Forbes Council members get access to the people, benefits and expertise they need to grow their businesses — and a dedicated member concierge who acts as an extension of their own team, providing personalized one-on-one support.
“It’s an honor to join such an impressive community of leaders on the Forbes Boston Business Council,” said Zoë Barry, CEO and founder of ZappRx upon receiving her invitation. “I am looking forward to collaborating and sharing my experiences with other leaders in my community. The council is sure to provide opportunities to inspire and be inspired by my peers.”
Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, says, “We are honored to welcome Zoë into the community. Our mission with Forbes Councils is to curate successful professionals from every industry, creating a vetted, social capital-driven network that helps every member make an even greater impact on the business world.”
ZappRx streamlines the complex process required to order specialty medications, increasing efficiencies when collecting and maintaining the myriad requisite information for specialty prescribing — including pharmacy information, payer/prior authorization requirements, and relevant clinical history. ZappRx then enables providers, pharmacists, and payers to digitally interact with one another to fill a prescription, reducing the need for faxes and phone calls. The platform is currently live in three disease areas, including Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH), Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), and Cystic Fibrosis, with plans to expand to support prescribing for other areas, including gastroenterology, rheumatology, neurology, and oncology conditions.
