Appointments

Biography

Dr. Khera is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Section of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine, and of Biostatistics in the Section on Health Informatics at the Yale School of Public Health. He is a general cardiologist at the Yale-New Haven Hospital, a data science, health policy, and outcomes researcher at the Yale School of Medicine, and an investigator at Yale’s Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation. He leads the Cardiovascular Data Science (CarDS) Lab, which is a multidisciplinary group focusing on data-driven discovery in cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Khera is a graduate of the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences where he was a National Young Investigator Scholarship awardee. During his internal medicine residency training at the University of Iowa and his cardiology fellowship training at UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dr. Khera received the American College of Cardiology’s Young Investigator Award and the Francois Abboud Young Investigator Award, in addition to being inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society for his academic accomplishments. Dr. Khera also received the Jeremiah Stamler Distinguished Young Investigator Research Award for 2021.

Dr. Khera’s research focuses on evaluating the quality of care and patient outcomes across hospitals in the United States and identifying targets for interventions aimed at improving the outcomes of patients. His work has specifically addressed the vast variation in adherence to evidence-based therapy, uptake of novel care practices and treatments, and rigorous evaluation of national health policies and their effects on hospital practices and patient outcomes. Dr. Khera’s work increasingly leverages digital data sources, including the electronic health record, electrocardiography, and cardiovascular imaging, with applications of informatics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to evaluate the care patients receive and to develop precision care solutions. The work he has led has been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), BMJ, Circulation, JAMA Internal Medicine, Nature Communications, and JAMA Cardiology, among others.
