Connecting Kentucky. Improving Healthcare.
As the state designated health information exchange, KHIE strives to be the single, trusted source of patient health information aggregated from participating providers across the Commonwealth.
KHIE is a robust, interoperable health information exchange network of 100+ hospitals and approximately 2500 ambulatory healthcare locations representing 5600 data feeds, that offers healthcare providers a way to securely contribute and access patient health information. The value is recognized at the point of care, when healthcare providers can quickly access a comprehensive, more holistic view of a patient’s health history.
This facilitation of information exchange empowers healthcare providers to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of care. It can influence the way healthcare is planned, coordinated, and delivered. KHIE is a tool that, if utilized, could support improved health outcomes for our patients and reduce healthcare costs in Kentucky.
Facilitate access to and retrieval of clinical data to provide safe, timely, efficient, effective, equitable, patient-centered care in alignment with the mission of the Cabinet for Health & Family Services.
Our immediate vision is to improve patient care by using the clinical data in KHIE to increase the communication among healthcare providers so that care plans are developed based on the availability of accurate and timely information.
Our long term vision is to create a healthier Kentucky by facilitation of the use and secure exchange of patient health information to improve the health of the state’s entire population; increase efficiencies while reducing costs; and advance the quality of the care delivered.
KHIE complies with all Federal and state privacy laws designed to protect health information, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
Through KHIE, healthcare providers have access at the point of care to real-time clinical patient health information from 5600 data feeds, including lab test results, radiology reports, transcribed reports, medication history and clinical summaries.
KHIE serves as the data intermediary for healthcare providers seeking to electronically submit immunization data, syndromic surveillance data, cancer case reporting, and communicable disease reporting. Additionally, as the designated public health reporting authority in Kentucky, KHIE supports objectives for Promoting Interoperability and QPP/MACRA.
