President and CEO, Civica Rx
Civica Rx in June added Anthem to its subsidiary that aims to team up with insurers to lower prescription drug costs, totaling 50 health system members.
Before joining Civica Rx, VanTrieste served as chief quality officer at Amgen. Previously he was vice president of worldwide quality for Bayer Healthcare’s biological products division and vice president of quality assurance for the hospital products division of Abbott Laboratories. He was also the founder of Rx-360, an organization that ensures safety in the biopharmaceutical supply chain.
VanTrieste speaks: “We are creating a public asset with a mission to ensure that essential generic medications are accessible and affordable. This will improve the situation for patients by bringing much needed competition to the generic drug market.”
