Blink Health names Express Scripts vet chief strategy officer

By David Salazar - 05/17/2018
Blink Health, which works to offer patients lower-priced generics, has added an expert in drug pricing, benefits management and pharmacy networks to its c-suite. Susan Lang, a former senior vice president and chief supply chain officer at Express Scripts, has been named Blink Health’s chief strategy officer, tasked with overseeing its strategic development and supply chain efforts, which include its pharmacy network.

“Blink Health’s technology, values, and business model uniquely positions the company to make the complicated pharmaceutical supply chain more transparent and patient-friendly,” Lang said. “I’m excited to join Blink Health’s world-class team to help develop new models and partnerships that create value for patients and pharmacies while offering the lowest prices on prescription drugs to Americans who need them most.”

Lang joins New York City-based Blink Health from healthcare consulting firm XIL Consulting, which she founded to work as an industry consultant focused on market access and drug pricing. In addition to her six years at Express Scripts, during which time she managed more than $50 billion in drug spend and founded generic group purchasing organization Econdisc, Lang spent 15 years on the clinical side of the business, managing hospitals and working with caregivers.

“Susan’s unmatched experience in prescription medication pricing, strategic business development, and health economics will help us accelerate our ability to make prescription medications affordable for everyone,” said Geoffrey Chaiken, co-founder and CEO of Blink Health. “In addition, Susan’s work in clinical settings with caregivers and patients gives her a rich understanding of people’s healthcare needs. Susan shares our passion for making the prescription drug market more equitable and is an outstanding addition to our executive team."
