Solomon J. Zak, MD
Senior Vice President, Business and Medical Intelligence

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.
