EDRS is Live!

The Iowa Electronic Death Registration System (EDRS) is an automated, secure web-based software application designed to process death records from point of initial entry and certification through registration and assignment of the State File Number. When implemented, EDRS will expedite correction requests and communication on issues between funeral directors, medical certifiers and Vital Records. This will make records more readily available to family, the Social Security Administration, County Recorders, and other appropriate parties.

EDRS went live April 21, 2014. From that date, all death certificates must be handled via EDRS.

For help, please contact the EDRS Help Desk: 866-309-0831 or If the Help Desk is unavailable, contact the Iowa Department of Public Health at 515-281-7689.
