Where does KHA get the data?

Kentucky hospitals and other providers are mandated to report inpatient and outpatient utilization data to the Commonwealth of Kentucky quarterly. KHA serves as the official collection agency through an agreement with
the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, providing the Cabinet with the data they are required to collect.

What information can I find there?
KHA InfoSuite contains inpatient data and outpatient surgery data at the case level for 2010 through the current collection period. Data elements are based on the modified 837 billing format and include payer information. Emergency Services, Observation Care and several other outpatient imaging and treatment modalities are also included in the system. Beginning January 1, 2015, KHA has collected all outpatient cases, greatly expanding the dataset. As new quarters of data are submitted and edited for quality, they are added to the system.

What features does it have?
KHA InfoSuite allows the user to extract information through a series of standardized reports and Excel spreadsheets. The system prompts the user through a series of interactive menus for filtering and grouping the data for your specific information needs. Reports are printable or may be downloaded in a text, PDF, CSV, or spreadsheet file. The information is ideal for utilization analysis, planning, marketing and quality applications.

How may I have access?
Your facility or system must have a current KHA InfoSuite System License Agreement. Users may request a user account. The system initially generates a temporary password. Access to the system can be made using any web browser (Chrome or Firefox is suggested) and requires no special software.

What are the limitations for use?

Who can use it?
