Tony Zappa, PharmD, MBA
FOUNDER AND CEO
Tony Zappa has been a pharmacist for over 34 years and has led companies in nearly every professional sector including retail, mail order, specialty, home infusion, home medical equipment, and PBM services. He managed several national operations that dealt with compliance and accreditation requirements. The idea for LicenseTrak came from a personal experience with a pharmacist who didn’t renew a license and worked for a full month before it was discovered. Tony knew there had to be a better way to have transparency into similar risk-related events, and designed LicenseTrak to solve that problem.
Prior to starting ZAA Technologies, Dr. Zappa served as Chief Solutions Officer for Trellis Rx, which helps hospitals and healthy systems design, build and operate specialty pharmacy programs. Tony also served as Vice President, Specialty Pharmacy and PBM for Visante, a consulting firm focused on medication management and “pharmacy as a business” engagements for hospitals, health systems, managed care plans and drug technology companies.
Dr. Zappa’s other roles included three years with Wellpartner as VP of Operations and Business Development, three years as CIO and VP of Specialty/Infusion Operations with Fairview Pharmacy Services, and multi-year stints with BioScrip and DPS.
