Meet physician innovator Dr. Doug Kavanagh

In 2016, Joule awarded five inaugural grants including a $50,000 grant to Dr. Doug Kavanagh for his submission, Ocean Tablet. Ocean is a patient-centric application that enables physicians to serve patients better by reducing language barriers, saving time and automatically translating concise clinical notes into the electronic medical record. 

With Ocean Tablet from CognisantMD, patients can complete clinical questionnaires on a secure, easy-to-use digital interface, either prior to appointments or while they wait, in the language of their choice. Since its inception, Ocean Tablet has seen over 1.5M patient updates with clinics seeing a 65% decrease in time needed for appointments.
