What is the Vermont Electronic Death Registration System?

On July 1, 2008, the Vermont Department of Health introduced an Electronic Death Registration System (EDRS). This Web-based application allows funeral directors and physicians, physician assistants and advanced practice registered nurses to register death certificates at any time and from any location where web access via Internet Explorer is available.

Once both parties have completed and signed/certified their entries, the record becomes a registered death certificate. Town Clerks can access the system and can print certified copies of the certificate as soon as it has been registered. This more timely and efficient process benefits those awaiting the final document and its data, including survivors and public health planners. The EDRS has also been designed to assist in improving the accuracy and consistency of information collected about deaths in Vermont.
