- Establishes interoperable electronic exchange of VR data between EHR and VR Systems
- More timely data release
- Higher quality data for demographic and epidemiologic surveillance and research
- Less costly electronic vital registration systems
- Greater integration with other stakeholder electronic systems
- Greater standardization of electronic Vital Records data collection and exchange
Vital statistics data are the basis for national and state information relevant for promoting public health and for aiding decision makers in setting policies, directing resources, managing problems, and identifying emerging health trends. Vital Records Death Reporting is part of the process of creating the legal record of a person’s death.
