Electronic Death Reporting Mandatory January 1

Dec 17th, 2014

On January 1, 2015 Kentucky physicians will be required to file death certificates using the Kentucky Electronic Death Registration System. This system has been optional for the past few years, and reduces the time and potential errors associated with the paper-based system. 

To register as a medical certifier in the KY-EDRS, click here. The Cabinet for Health and Family Services and the Office of Vital Statistics recommend creating a user account as soon as possible. The Cabinet for Health and Family Services has published a detailed electronic guide to using the KY-EDRS. It is available here. Additionally, the Office of Vital Statistics is holding several training sessions for using the KY-EDRS throughout 2015. For a schedule of those sessions, click here.
