The Dolores L. Mitchell Investing in Information Award

Previously known as the "INVESTING IN INFORMATION AWARD," this award was renamed in 2013 for long time Consortium Supporter and Board Member, Dolores L. Mitchell, former Executive Director of the Group Insurance Commission for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Since 1996, MHDC's Investing in Information Awards have honored organizations and individuals who have invested capital, knowledge and leadership to use information to innovate health care delivery, technology, financing and policy.

Due to COVID-19 and the Pandemic, MHDC took a break from choosing an award recipient as well as chose not to host our annual Leadership Dinner in 2020. We will resume this again this year (as long as it is safe to).
