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.
