DECEMBER 2, 2021 – Kentucky REC Annual Conference
Hybrid Event with Special Guest Speakers – In Person and Virtual
Lexington Kentucky, Malone’s Prime Events Center
FEATURED SPEAKER – ANDREW BLEDSOE, KHIE Deputy Executive Director
Bridges to Coordinating Care: The New KHIE!
KHIE is an interoperable electronic network that supports the exchange of patient health information among healthcare providers across the Commonwealth and beyond. KHIE’s goal is to aid and assist in patient care delivery. Currently, KHIE has over 8000 connections within Kentucky where patient information is exchanged and provided back to healthcare agencies.
Andrew Bledsoe, KY State HIT Director and KHIE Deputy Executive Director, will provide a deep dive into the multitude of KHIE Services and how they can assist with both clinical care coordination and COVID reporting. Exciting KHIE enhancements include a connection to the National eHealth Exchange allowing access to important data from healthcare providers from across the country including the VA, DOD, and the SSA, further broadening the scope of care coordination. In addition, KHIE has recently finished functionality on an Image Exchange Program allowing images to be shared both from hospital PAC systems and displayed to users via the KHIE ePartnerViewer Provider Portal. Starting initially with KY hospitals, KHIE’s goal is to broaden the scope to include diagnostic centers and other healthcare disciplines that rely on imaging. Andrew will also describe improvements to the KHIE Provider Portal allowing users to automatically or manually add COVID-19 Lab Results, Vaccine Reporting, in addition to allowing users to upload notes designed to share patient data.

During our day together, we’ll have guest speakers, along with presentations on quality initiatives, HIPAA, Telehealth, and more to ensure that clinicians, hospital administrators, and clinic staff are well prepared for the challenges of modern healthcare. Our valued partners at KHIE, the Kentucky Health Information Exchange, will be presenting along with us.
We are pleased to be hosting our first ever HYBRID event to give our attendees the option to attend either in person* or virtually. All registrants will receive links to session recordings after the event.
