CA-EDRS is California's system for electronic death certificate origination and registration. A death certificate provides prima facie evidence of a person’s death and is relied upon for important legal proceedings as well as for the creation of important derivative public health and regulatory data. California currently processes over 250,000 new death certificates per year (1 in 10 deaths in the U.S.). The Web-based CA-EDRS system provides the ability for coroners, funeral directors, doctors, and hospitals to submit electronic death certificates for registration 24 hours a day.
