Nashville Business Journal Recognizes Joan Butters and Heather Bassett

In a year marked by uncertainty and change, stalwart leadership is a crucial ingredient to organizational success. Nowhere has this been more evident than at Xsolis, which over the past year has grown to nearly 250 colleagues and partnered with some of the largest and most innovative healthcare companies in the nation.

That success has not gone unnoticed and with Nashville as a desirable hub of economic growth, we consider our leaders to be a competitive advantage.

As a reflection of their drive, dedication and visible contributions to Nashville and healthcare at large, the Nashville Business Journal has recently recognized both Xsolis Chief Medical Officer Heather Bassett and Xsolis Chief Executive Joan Butters as part of their annual awards programs.

Heather Bassett, MD

As part of the 2021 Health Care Innovation Awards, NBJ’s Chief Medical Officer of the Year program “aims to honor those who pushed the region’s signature industry forward and who helped protect their communities in uncertain times.” Dr. Bassett was selected as part of a prominent cohort of physicians who helped bolster our national healthcare response over the past year.

Dr. Bassett’s ties to the Nashville area run deep: after undergraduate studies at Carnegie Mellon and receiving her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Texas Medical Branch, Dr. Bassett served as a hospitalist at Centennial Medical Center in Nashville for eight years before joining the Xsolis team as Chief Medical Officer in 2013. She leads the team of physicians and data scientists responsible for driving the analytics and clinical framework for Xsolis’ technology solutions, extending her impact at hospitals from coast to coast.

As part of the Most Admired CEOs of Nashville program, Nashville Business Journal “accepted nominations from the public. Nominees were grouped into categories based on their company size and type, and then were asked to vote on one another. Those with the highest scores after voting are this year’s Most Admired CEOs Awards honorees.” Xsolis Joan Butters was honored as part of this select group.

Since founding Xsolis in 2012 alongside Jim Sohr, Joan has driven growth, strategy, and outcomes throughout her tenure. The employee base has grown exponentially, the customer footprint has expanded across both hospital and health plan verticals, and Xsolis received a $75m minority stake investment by Brighton Park Capital in 2021. This award builds upon her recognition: in 2005, NBJ named Joan a Woman of Influence for her contributions and experience in corporate strategy across all healthcare verticals.

Xsolis is proud to be represented locally and nationally by talented leaders like Heather and Joan. To learn more about being part of our team, visit our Careers page.
