KHIE is designated to facilitate the automation of public health reporting for the state of Kentucky. Direct Data Entry (DDE) is the quasi-modernization of the manual entry of lab results for certain communicable diseases and their associated case reports. Participating healthcare organizations can utilize KHIE's online web forms to manually enter these, replacing the traditional paper-based methods and minimizing administrative reporting burdens.
The reportable disease conditions and associated case reports that can be submitted through DDE include:
Reportable Labs: Positive COVID-19; Sexually Transmitted Diseases; Hepatitis A, B, C; Perinatal Hepatitis; Child Hepatitis; Multi-drug Resistant Organism; other Reportable Conditions that include Enteric, VPD, Vectorbourne, TB.
Case Reports: COVID-19; Sexually Transmitted Diseases; Multi-drug Resistant Organisms; Hepatitis A, B, C; Perinatal Hepatitis; Child Hepatitis; Other Reportable Conditions that include Enteric, VPD, Vectorbourne, TB.
