COVID-19 Reporting Guidance

​​​​Meeting COVID-19 Test Reporting Obligations

The Kentucky Health Information Exchange (KHIE) continues to keep pace with the requirements set forth by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Kentucky Department for Public Health (KDPH) regarding the lab reporting requirements for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). KHIE is designated to facilitate this reporting. 

If you are not currently electronically connected to KHIE, you must manually report these lab results through KHIE's Direct Data Entry (DDE) feature located in the ePartnerViewer.   Additionally, KDPH requests organizations to onboard with DDE to manually enter results in the interim period while ELR onboarding is in progress. 

The Kentucky Department for Public Health (KDPH) has proposed changes to Kentucky regulation 902 KAR 2:020 for the reportable disease surveillance of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) to reduce the burden of COVID-19 case reporting and to align with other endemic respiratory viruses and upcoming national guidance changes.
