Connecticut's Electronic Death Registration System


What is CT-Vitals?

CT-Vitals is Connecticut's secure, web-based electronic death registration system. The system allows death data providers (funeral directors, medical certifiers, and local registrars) to electronically create, update, sign/certify, and register death certificates.

CT-Vitals will:

  • improve timeliness in death reporting
  • provide electronic workflow between the various data providers
  • allow for multiple data providers to access and complete their portion of the death certificate
  • improve disease tracking and reporting for public health surveillance and research
  • minimize errors with online edits
  • deliver real-time SSN verification with the Social Security Administration
  • allow funeral directors to pay for and print a burial permit and cremation certificate and order death certificates online
  • create an automated cremation authorization workflow
