State Health Commissioner Kristina Box, M.D., presented the award to Regenstrief President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Embí, M.D., M.S., and his team of experts that created the COVID-19 Dashboard.

The Regenstrief dashboard tracks COVID-19 patients within Indiana hospitals and healthcare systems, providing additional data and a wider view of the outbreak in the state. The dashboard makes information on the pandemic easily accessible and understandable for both public health leaders and citizens.

The State has relied upon the information to inform its response to the virus. Additionally, the dashboard has been cited by dozens of media outlets in their coverage of the pandemic.

This valuable resource was created in partnership with Indiana State Department of Health, Indiana Family Social Services Administration, Indiana Management Performance Hub, Indiana Health Information Exchange, Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI and Indiana University School of Medicine. Dr. Embí; Regenstrief Vice President for Data and Analytics Shaun Grannis, M.D., M.S. and Regenstrief Director of Public Health Informatics Brian Dixon, PhD, MPA, were all instrumental in the development of the dashboard.
