William Davis, 39, the chief financial officer of Chicago-based health information technology vendor Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, has been appointed to the board of SXC Health Solutions. Based in the Chicago suburb of Lombard, Ill., SXC is a provider of pharmaceutical supply-chain and pharmacy benefits-management IT solutions and processing services.
Davis, who will also serve on the audit committee of SXC's parent company, Systems XCellence, fills the vacancy left by Michael Callaghan, whose departure from the board was announced Jan. 2.
"The pharmaceutical marketplace is undergoing a significant amount of change and SXC is uniquely positioned to provide innovative solutions and services that address the clinical and operational needs of both health plan sponsors and pharmacies," Davis said in a news release.
Davis joined Allscripts as CFO in October 2002 and is also responsible for its management-information system operations. Previously, he served as CFO of Lante Corp., a Chicago-based technology consultant, and he also worked in the technology group of PriceWaterhouseCoopers from 1991 through 1999. -- By Andis Robeznieks / HITS staff writer
