ELR Electronic Laboratory Reporting

​​​​​​​​​Electronic Laboratory Reporting (ELR) for Reportable Labs 

Electronic Submission via Interface

​Electronic Laboratory Reporting (ELR) is the automated reporting of communicable diseases to the Kentucky Department for Public Health, in accordance with 902 KAR 2:020 and the  Kentucky Reportable Diseases and Conditions.  The benefits of ELR include improved timeliness of reports and reduction of manual errors.

The Kentucky Health Information Exchange (KHIE) continues to keep pace with 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.

The approved  LOINC List for NEDSS   should be referenced and adopted to ensure compliance. 

Register With KHIE  to set up an ELR interface connection to submit COVID-19 test results.
