Press Release

XIL Health CEO Susan Lang Brings 30+ Years of Healthcare Expertise to

Forbes Technology Council

The former C-suite executive with Express Scripts and chief strategy officer of Blink Health advises top pharmacy executives and digital healthcare startups

ST.LOUIS – July 8, 2021 — Susan Lang, MA, MBA, startup advisor to Medly, Smith Rx, former Chief Strategy Officer of Blink Health, and the CEO of XIL Health – a leading strategic analytics and technology company in the drug economics space, has been accepted into Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community of high-profile CIOs, CTOs and other technology executives.

This forum for Lang’s thought leadership comes at a time of critical healthcare industry change, including the loss of more than 2,500 brick-and-mortar community US pharmacies.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Forbes Technology Council to not only connect with other experienced healthtech professionals, but also to share my thoughts and knowledge on key decisions being made in the healthcare space,” said Lang. “The healthcare industry is always evolving, making it difficult to navigate. I’m looking forward to helping healthcare executives make informed decisions in an unpredictable landscape.”

“We are honored to welcome Susan Lang, CEO of XIL Health, into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Technology Council. “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”

In response to this crisis, XIL Health, under Lang’s leadership, recently introduced XIL Impact, a pioneering cloud-based technology platform, to help pharmacy executives negotiate with major payers in real-time. The platform provides retail pharmacies with analytics that account for rapidly fluctuating market forces and allows them to account for losses and gains. This technology affords struggling pharmacies a way to view their complex financials, better equipping them with the tools to survive.

In April, Lang also expanded XIL Health’s offerings to assist healthcare startups in the pharmacy access area. Despite the post-COVID demand for digital healthcare services, the market is dominated by Fortune 100 companies that, Lang says, creates an unequal playing field for startups focused on innovation.
