Lab Reporting Requirements for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

The Kentucky Health Information Exchange (KHIE) has been working steadfastly to keep pace with the evolving requirements set forth by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regarding the lab reporting requirements for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). We acted quickly to implement solutions to ensure that electronic lab reporting (ELR) feeds through KHIE would meet those requirements.

Your organization can meet the HHS reporting requirements, including the 'ask on order entry' (AOE) measures, if your organization is appropriately LOINC coding AND has an ELR feed through KHIE. The approved  LOINC list for NEDSS   should be referenced and adopted to ensure compliance. 

What can KHIE do to help you?

At this time, KHIE can validate that your COVID-19 messages are received; however, we cannot validate that the HHS required fields are appropriately structured. Prior to submitting these messages to KHIE, organizations should ensure their messages are correctly structured to contain the appropriate information.

Enabling Care Coordination and Better Treatment During this Crisis and Beyond

KHIE is committed to playing a key role in informing healthcare providers quickly with real-time notifications and access to a comprehensive patient record. Access the ePartnerViewer to take advantage of KHIE's   Patient Alert Query Service  to find a patient's status for COVID-19. This will prove valuable as patients transition through the various healthcare systems.

Take Our Survey

To ensure that we have accurate information and can assist your organization with reporting requirements in the future, we ask that you participate in a short survey that will tell us more about lab reporting in your organization.
