Rohan Khera, MD, MS

Cardiovascular Medicine

Biography

Rohan Khera, MBBS (a medical degree awarded in several countries outside the U.S.), is a cardiologist who studies the use of data and artificial intelligence to determine the best therapies for patientswith heart issues. 

His work explores the use of “digital phenotyping,” or data from devices like personal smartphones. The information found there—including data regarding activity, social interactions, and day-to-day behaviors—can be combined with information from patients’ electronic health records to determine treatment possibilities. 

Often, physicians use a simple questionnaire to determine patient risk for cardiovascular issues. One of Dr. Khera’s studies suggests that using a patient’s electronic medical record can produce substantially more accurate predictions.

As leader of the Cardiovascular Data Science (CarDS) Lab, Dr. Khera heads a multidisciplinary group focused on data-driven learning in heart disease. Some of his work helps teams evaluate how accurately patients are diagnosed and treated. The group also designs new treatments and examines whether physicians follow what is considered best care.

Dr. Khera has published articles in leading medical journals, including The Journal of the American Medical AssociationThe BMJ, Circulation, andNature Communications. 

Additionally, Dr. Khera has received numerous awards, including Young Investigator awards from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association Resuscitation Science. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute awarded Dr. Khera a career development grant to develop automated tools for better care for heart patients.
