New vital records system reduces time

POSTED: February 5, 2008 5:03 a.m.

The Georgia Department of Human Resources, Division of Public Health, Office of Vital Records has implemented a new system that will significantly reduce the length of time it takes Georgians to obtain official copies of birth and death certificates.

The Vital Events Information System is an electronic registration system of vital records that allows constituents to receive copies of their vital events within a few days. The system also improves the quality and accuracy of vital events data as well.

"The new system allows us to provide quality and timely customer service to Georgians who need to obtain official copies of their vital records," said Stuart Brown, director of the Division of Public Health.
"The Vital Events Information System not only decreases constituent wait time but it also allows for increased accuracy and completeness."

Other features of the Vital Events Information System include:

Certified copies of vital events now available in all Georgia counties.

Local custodians can issue certified copies of vital records.

Registration of paternity acknowledgments at hospitals without delay.
