About Khoa Nguyen
Khoa Nguyen, Pharm.D., received his Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Michigan, College of Pharmacy. He then completed a fellowship in medical informatics at the VA Indianapolis, HSR&D. After his fellowship, he joined the Regenstrief Institute, Center for Health Services Research as a research scientist and Purdue University, College of Pharmacy as a Visiting Assistant Professor. Currently, Dr. Nguyen is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacotherapy and Translational Research at the University of Florida, College of Pharmacy. His clinical practice is within the UF Health Personalized Medicine Program to help develop and improve pharmacogenomic clinical decision support. Additionally, he serves as a faculty liaison at the UF CTSI Integrated Data Repository (IDR) Services to support both research data requests and research IT integration into UF Health electronic health record (EHR) system.
Dr. Khoa Nguyen’s research interests include medical informatics, human-computer interaction, pharmacogenomics, and artificial intelligence (AI). His research focused on improving patient safety through human factor engineering and health information technology. Specifically, Dr. Nguyen wants to utilize human factor engineering, and human-computer interaction method to enhance the implementation of pharmacogenomic clinical decision supports (PGx-CDS). PGx-CDS, when implemented, can foster pharmacogenomics service to predict and prevent severe adverse drug reactions from genetic mutations. Finally, Dr. Nguyen wants to improve the integration of AI tools into EHR systems to assist clinical decision-making. Current projects include the integration of a machine-learning opioid prediction and risk stratification into the UF EHR system as well as develop an AI prediction model and CDS to improve PGx uptake.
