Michael Azzolin, PharmD, MBA – CEO
Michael is the CEO and co-founder of PharmD on Demand. He is a 2002 graduate of the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy and received his Master’s of Business Administration from Piedmont College. The foundation for PharmD on Demand stems from Michael’s early experiences in hospital pharmacy. After leaving a large metropolitan hospital to become Pharmacy Director at a rural hospital, Michael identified inconsistencies in patient care from a clinical pharmacy perspective. Medication errors, drug interactions, delayed medication therapy optimization and the like often occurred more frequently at rural facilities, due to lack of a 24-hour pharmacy. With Michael’s experience in technology, the flagship concept of PharmD on Demand was developed – remote pharmacy services or RPS. In 2015 he was named to UGA’s 40 Under 40 program. He is the 2015 recipient of the UGA College of Pharmacy Distinguished Alumni Award. Michael is an active member of the Georgia Pharmacy Association (GPhA) and is one of 16 members of GPhA to be selected for the inaugural LeadershipGPhA class of 2015. He is a member of the Georgia Society of Health-System Pharmacists (GSHP) and the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). He proudly serves on the Board of the Georgia Pharmacy Foundation. Michael is married to his wife Stephanie and together have 5 wonderful children.
