Who We Are


The Office of Data Analytics (ODA) serves as the center of excellence for health and human services statistical analysis, generative analytics and evaluation/monitoring metrics.

The Office of Data Analytics was created to identify and innovate strategic initiatives to inform public policy and provide opportunities for improved health outcomes for all Kentuckians through data analytics.

The Office of Data Analytics assumed the responsibilities of the former Office of Health Data Analytics (OHDA) on Aug.​ 1, 2022. ​

Programs &

Research, Analytics, and Program Evaluation​

Health and social services policy covers complex topics and involves difficult decisions that must balance the interests of several constituencies. Analysts with ODA 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. Researchers at ODA work on projects to promote the creation of new knowledge to inform Kentucky policy makers as they make these decisions.

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 sharing agreements across the Cabinet and providing guidance on responsible data sharing.
