Solomon J. Zak, MD
Senior Vice President, Business and Medical Intelligence
For the past 15 years, Dr. Solomon J. Zak has guided medical intelligence product development. An invaluable contributor to the ikaSystems team, he brings to ikaSystems a degree of healthcare industry knowledge and foresight possessed by few in the field.
Before joining ikaSystems, Dr. Zak founded several healthcare companies. In the process, he identified actuarially defined, case-mix adjusted and provider risk tiers for 40 health plans and insurance entities throughout the United States. His most recent endeavor, DataMedica, created a primary care provider quality assessment system, the Zak Quality Index (ZQI), consisting of 59 measures. The ZQI demonstrates that economic profiling of primary care physicians is an excellent proxy for quality of practice. DataMedica was also one of the first companies to offer solutions for HEDIS reporting.
In previous positions, Dr. Zak served as medical director of SHARE Health Plan of Minnesota and co-corporate medical director of Share Development Corporation until it merged with UnitedHealthcare. He was also a consultant to Humana Hospital Corporation in its acquisition of IMC and initiated the licensing of UCARE, a successful University of Minnesota HMO.
Dr. Zak graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Medicine, and he has taught hematology, conducted research and has been published in many peer-review journals.
