Promoting Interoperability

​​​​​​​KHIE's robust health information exchange fulfills Promoting Interoperability (Meaningful Use) objectives of the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record Incentive Program.  To fulfill these public health reporting objectives, eligible providers and hospitals must connect with KHIE. 

KHIE plays a crucial role in meeting population health management needs.  KHIE works with providers across the state of Kentucky to report immunization data, syndromic surveillance data, electronic reportable laboratory data, and cancer case data.  

In program year 2020, all eligible providers (EPs) are required to successfully attest to 2 public health measures and all eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals (EHs/CAHs) are required to successfully attest to 4 public health measures.

EHR Incentive Program participants who claim an exclusion for public health reporting are responsible for ensuring they meet the qualifications and retain any documentation that fully supports their attestation choice.  link to 2020 Kentucky Public Health Guidance.
