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, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, and JAMA Cardiology, among others.
