Kush B. Badshah is a Director at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) in Boston, MA. In this role, he leads a number of the organization’s large-scale initiatives focused on utilizing quality improvement (QI) tools and methods to deliver high-value patient care, decrease clinical care team burnout, and help healthcare organizations accelerate their population health journey. He also provides strategic oversight to IHI’s Primary Care portfolio- developing content, establishing partnerships, and designing a suite of programs and projects in service of primary care transformation. Prior to joining IHI, Mr. Badshah managed QI initiatives at a network of primary care clinics in Washington State, focusing on the patient’s journey throughout the care continuum, and worked with communities in the West Indies to increase access to care. He has degrees in Health Sciences from Medical University of the Americas in the West Indies and Humanities & Religious Studies from Lehigh University in Pennsylvania.
Originally from Seattle, WA, Kush moved to Boston in 2016 to join IHI and presently resides in Back Bay. His interests include traveling, hiking, trying local craft brews (particularly IPAs), boxing, football (go Seahawks!), and exploring new food hotspots. Kush is excited to join the dynamic team at Title IX Girls to do his part to ensure that young girls in our community- our future leaders- are set up for success from the start.
