Who We Are

​​​​The Division of Analytics serves as the center of excellence for health and human services statistical analysis, generative analytics and evaluation/monitoring metrics.

Data Analytics - Analysts with the Division of Analytics provide oversight and strategic direction and are responsible for coordinating data analysis initiatives for the various departments that regulate health care and social services to ensure policy is consistent with long-term goals across the commonwealth.

Data Governance - The Data Governance Program coordinates requests for data and data integration for the Cabinet for Health and Family Services. The Data Governance Program also is responsible for cataloging and maintaining data share agreements across the Cabinet and providing guidance on responsible data sharing.

Health Facility and Services Data - Health facility and services data is a collection of records describing a single inpatient stay or outpatient encounter in Kentucky. This data is made available to the public, policy makers, researchers, public health and community health stakeholders to inform health-related decisions.

Health Services Surveys and Reports - Data is collected from health care service providers and facilities through an Internet-based annual survey. Annual reports are produced and published from each dataset in support of health planning and the Certificate of Need program.

Research and Program Evaluation - Health and social services policy covers complex topics and involves difficult decisions that must balance the interests of several constituencies. Researchers at the Office of Health Data and Analytics work on projects to promote the creation of new knowledge to inform Kentucky policy makers as they make these decisions.

State University Partnership Program - The State University Partnership is a research program between CHFS leadership and university research centers designed to expand Cabinet research capacity, support the development of evidence based policy decisions and develop a research community ​in the commonwealth.
