ROCKVILLE, MD –CNSI, a fast growing, innovative provider of IT business solutions for government and commercial enterprises, today announced the availability of its Electronic Vital Records System (EVRS), a comprehensive, Web-based solution that enables states to create and manage vital events such as birth, death, marriage, divorce and fetal death. The company also announced the State of New Hampshire has successfully deployed EVRS statewide, making New Hampshire the first in the country to deploy a fully integrated, 100 percent Web-based vital records management system.

EVRS enables states to manage all aspects of their vital events management including data collection, editing, record registration, certificate issuance, fee collection, document control number tracking, safety paper inventory control, statistical analysis, enterprise reporting, and information dissemination. EVRS provides funeral homes, hospitals, town and city clerks, certifying physicians, and authorized healthcare facilities with a Web-based system to register vital events data directly into a centralized data repository over a secure Internet connection. EVRS is the only Web-based vital records system in the market today that is 100 percent compliant with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) 2003 revised certificate specifications, as well as with security guidelines for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). Its System Management Console enables designated administrators to configure and assign rights to users and groups, ensuring the right people have access to the right information. Furthermore, New Hampshire’s EVRS includes the Online Verification Software interface required to communicate real-time fact of death information to the Social Security Administration.”Tracking vital events data is a fundamental process that takes place in each and every state, involving the creation of thousands of records and certificates, ” said CNSI President B. Chatterjee. “Automating the process with EVRS, CNSI ensures state agencies interact with citizens and agencies in an efficient and timely manner. It is another great example of CNSI’s dedication to helping government agencies operate at peak efficiency through better IT systems.”

New Hampshire: Improved Efficiency & Accuracy Through EVRS The State of New Hampshire selected CNSI in order to centralize their vital records data and capitalize on CNSI’s innovative Web-based technology. EVRS enables New Hampshire’s 120 funeral directors, 27 hospitals, 234 town/city clerk offices and authorized certifying physicians and health care facilities to register all vital event data into the State’s centralized Vital Records database.”Vital event data is extremely important to the State of New Hampshire-it not only provides valuable insight into the population, but it also represents some of the most common ways citizens interact with the state – issuing birth, death and divorce certificates, ” said William R. Bolton, Jr., State Registrar and Director, Division of Vital Records Administration. “CNSI’s vital events system provides real time access to extremely accurate and high quality data, enabling the State to make best use of the information collected such as bioterrorism monitoring and tracking emerging infectious diseases.”

New Hampshire’s EVRS went live in April 2004 and routes all the information pertaining to New Hampshire’s 10, 000 deaths, 15, 000 births, 5, 000 divorces, and 10, 000 marriages each year. With records dating back to 1640, the system performs all Vital Record Office tasks, from the capture or registration of the vital event to creating and running statistical reports and printing legal certificates. The solution is also used to collect fees and provide online data verification with the Social Security Administration.This centralized approach to data capture has not only reduced state maintenance costs but also increased the timeliness of the State’s vital event information resulting in better customer service and more detailed reporting. With data accuracy of near-100 percent, the New Hampshire EVRS is among the nation’s top five percent most accurate vital records programs.
