Joanna Cavalier

Assistant Professor of Medicine
Medicine, General Internal Medicine


I am an academic hospitalist at Duke University Hospital. My clinical work focuses on care of hospitalized adults with complex medical issues. I also perform general medicine procedures such as lumbar punctures, thoracenteses, paracenteses, and the placement of central venous catheters. Outside of my clinical work, I serve as the Associate Medical Director for the Digital Strategy Office (DSO) at Duke. In this role, I help lead digital health work at Duke, including virtual care, eVisits, remote patient monitoring, virtual nursing, self-scheduling, MyChart, patient reported outcomes, and other initiatives within the DSO. My research focuses on the real-world impact of our digital health interventions for patients. I am also interested in cost of care and care delivery redesign.
