Kentucky Health Information Exchange
The Kentucky Health Information Exchange (KHIE) is a secure, interoperable network in which participating providers with certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) can access, locate, and share needed patient health information with other providers, at the point of care.
The Health Information Exchange provides a common, secure electronic information infrastructure that meets national standards to ensure interoperability across various health systems—while affording healthcare providers the functionality to support preventive health and disease management.
As KHIE continues to build its robust HIE, it also fulfills several Meaningful Use (MU) objectives found in the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Final Rule. KHIE serves as the intermediary for public health reporting in the state of Kentucky and works with providers and hospitals.
In addition to public health reporting, KHIE continues to enhance its value-added service lines to include: consumer health engagement initiatives, as well as the fulfillment of other MU requirements, such as transitions of care. Ultimately, KHIE strives to improve care coordination and overall health outcomes while facilitating the adoption, integration, and the meaningful use of CEHRT. Much of KHIE’s value is realized through the sharing of its data with the providers who can utilize the information to improve the health of Kentucky’s citizens.
