All Ohio physicians may request to electronically complete and sign/certify the cause of death for Ohio records in the Electronic Death Registration System (EDRS). Switching to electronic certification eliminates in-person contact for funeral homes, medical professionals, and local health districts, provides work queues in EDRS showing physicians at a glance all death records needing action, and allows immediate registration of death records upon certification.
For questions or to sign up for electronic certification, contact the Ohio Department of Health Bureau of Vital Statistics at VS.Helpdesk@odh.ohio.gov. Read the State Medical Board of Ohio’s policy statement and FAQs.
