Direct Data Entry (DDE)

​​​​​​​​​​​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.
