Dr. Boustani received his medical degree from the University of Damascus, Faculty of Medicine in Damascus, Syria in 1994.  He completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Mt. Sinai Medicine Center in Cleveland, OH in 1999, the Geriatric Medicine Fellowship and Clinical Research Curriculum Fellowship at UNC-Chapel Hill, in Chapel Hill, NC in 2002, and in the same year his MPH degree from Public Health Care and Prevention, University of North Carolina School of Public Health in Chapel Hill, NC.  He went on to complete a Medical Informatics Fellowship at the Regenstrief Institute, Inc. in Indianapolis, IN.

Dr. Boustani is a geriatric implementation scientist who mastered skills in clinical research, epidemiology, and implementation science. He has been a principal investigator of 22 current and past grants from the National Institute on Aging, Agency of Health Care Research and Quality, and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services Innovation. He has published more than 100 manuscripts in the fields of implementation science and aging brain.  Since his arrival at Indiana University in 2002 he has been a collaborating member of various research teams that brought in more than $39 million in funding.

Over the past three years, Dr. Boustani used implementation science to develop a “Blue Print” for transforming the health care system into a learning health care system capable of providing the triple aims of “Better Health, Better Care, and Lower cost.”  Such a transformation required the creation of a knowledge management engine within the new learning health care system capable of discovering innovative health care solutions, adapt evidence based medicine, and utilize implementation science to rapidly disseminate effective solutions across the enterprise and quickly eliminate failed or ineffective solutions.


Malaz A. Boustani, MD has stated that he has no financial interests or arrangements in association with this presentation.
