Electronic Birth Registration (EBR)
For Birth Registrars
| EBR Troubleshooting FAQ's |
Registration (EBR) is the mechanism by which births are registered via the
Internet. It is designed to allow a hospital birth registrar to electronically enter and register a birth record, and capture and store any required
signatures . This innovative technology eliminates the need for hospitals to
forward original hard copy birth records to county health departments.
Registered users log on through their local Internet provider and enter the data
directly into the state database via a Citrix server.
There is no usage cost for hospitals and no intrusion into hospital computer
systems or firewalls. The birth registrar
accesses the state system; not the hospital system.
In order for the hospital and state office to ensure a record is filed for every
delivery, and that no fraudulent record is filed, the birth registrar
will fax the local county vital statistics office a labor and delivery log for
reconciliation against the records entered into the database.
